A year in editorial cartoons
Editorial cartoons are by far the most controversial elements on our Opinion pages, most frequently drawing the ire of some who do disagree with the editorial cartoonist. Over the course of the year, we have received complaints about cartoons drawn by Nick Anderson of the Houston Chronicle; Clay Bennett of the Chattanooga, Tenn., Times; Bill Bramhall of the New York Daily News and Jack Ohman of The Sacramento Bee.
We receive roughly 10 to 20 cartoons each day from which we make a single selections. Some of the cartoons, drawn by cartoonists working for McClatchy newspapers such as Jim Morin of the Miami Herald, Joel Pett of the Lexington, Ky., Herald Leader and Kevin Siers of the Charlotte, N.C., Observer, are available on our website each week.
For our year-end cartoon selection, we’ve chosen a few that have appeared in our print edition and others that have not. Here are some of our favorites, and favorite topics, this year.
