Cartoons, Comic Strips and Opinions

Hosted by

Political cartoons are as old as America--going back to colonial days, the Revolution and the Civil War. They’re still a prominent feature of editorial pages nationwide. Should they reflect the artist’s opinion--or mirror the publisher’s point of view? While that debate rages, politics are also familiar on other newspaper pages: the comics. From “The Yellow Kid”--who gave his name to tabloid journalism--to “Doonesbury,” “Peanuts” and “Candorville.” We’ll talk with the founder of Ohio State’s massive Cartoon Library and Museum
