I find it disturbing whenever somebody criticizes Bush...and they're labeled "un-American". Un-American is blindly following your President without questioning his/her authority. It's an editorial cartoon. It is what it is. It's your right as a member of the media to print it and question whatever you feel needs to be questioned. When you stop doing that, I will call you un-American. As far as doing it the "right" way? Would, Mr. xxxxx feel more comfortable if every cartoon was approved and/or censored by the government? They have countries that will do that you....they're called dictatorships.
I have to say that I appreciate the editorial page now that Mr. Delaney is the editor. While I don't always agree with everything, I do see some Ron Paul articles, and I DON'T see the death chants the former editor parlayed on embryonic stem cell research and abortion.
It is not bashing when it is TRUE.
Sorry, but that cartoon hits the mark. Bush has wasted more money than you can imagine. He will be remembered as the worst President in history, except maybe Buchanan. Because James always makes the list.
Mr. Cobler - I don't take editorial cartoons personally, and I certainly don't believe they are ALWAYS indicative of the VicAd's viewpoints. I will say that I do get a little weary of the Bush bashing. I have never seen such disrespect for the office of the President of the United States and such vitriol toward our government as I have in the past couple of years. I do not single out your publication for this, however, as it seems to be a nationwide problem with news media. If I don't like a cartoon or editorial, after reading it, I still appreciate the person airing their point of view and either agree with the content or disagree. I don't believe viewpoints should ever be censored, though. If a certain cartoon does not appeal to me, I just let it go. As far as the concentration on local news, I will probably in the minority on this, but I would rather see more national, real news. I suppose I will continue to go the Houston Chronicle for this. I really don't care too much what is happening on a local level. The gossipy undertones of many of the stories the Advocate prints can be overheard on any local sidewalk; I expect a news publication to print NEWS. This is not a gripe toward the VicAd, just a fervent hope that the VicAd can step up their professionalism and stop printing stories about chupacabras and such, and start reporting more national and world news in a professional manner. This is what I desire to see in any newspaper, local or otherwise. Thank you for listening to my rantings.
