Sound Off: Why are all of your political cartoons anti-Republican?

The Journal-World strives to present an editorial page package that includes columns and cartoons from across the political spectrum. While it’s hard to provide a perfect philosophical balance and space limitations would make it difficult to use two cartoons each day, we are glad to hear your perspective and will take it into consideration. The reality is that even the most conservative columnists and cartoonists are poking fun at Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich right now.

if there isn't enough space in the print form, why did the paper run 4 photos of frost?

Save up all those anti-republican cartoons and after President Obama is re-elected, you can send them to whoever runs against him so he can see how really silly and stupid he looked to most of the voters.

Who needs political cartoons? For absurd caricatures and an over-abundance of labels, look no further than the comment section.

math.....I watch faux for comedy....I love how the commentators speak such lunacy and people like you eat it up. I watch faux for the setup......report news that upsets conservatives exclusively and report it in such a way leaving out important facts and including the red meat that conservatives live for. You know.... why report facts....just use emotion based reporting. My favorite is when they report a missing caucasian child. Like no other child matters. Or they always claim that judges in federal appeals court are liberal leaning using innuendo tone instead of facts because people like you have your own set of facts...... right????

It shouldn't be liberals vs. conservatives. It ought to be normal Americans, willing to work on issues collaboratively vs. the idiots who treat politics like warfare, and make comments like those up and down this thread.

There is some bias within us all -- some all liberal, some all conservative, some in between. At least editorialists and readers of editorials can admit their biases. The LJWorld does indeed play Brownback hard -- speaking as a conservative, I'll say he deserves it. They didn't seem to treat Sebelius the same way, I'll admit, but maybe that's for a reason.

Many editorials here, written by owner Dolph Simons, are extremely conservative. This publication syndicates George Will. The LJWorld offers perspective from both sides, consistently. "Sounding off" about how the LJWorld is biased only highlights the bias of those writing in.

Because they are a joke. Anyone want to sign up to live on the moon? Maybe you can join the group that doesn't care about the poor.

Cartoons are for kids and most liberals have the intellectual prowess of children. It's a natural fit.

For one thing, conservatives just aren't funny. The best they can do is be mean. Look at Dennis Miller; he hasn't been funny since 9/11 when he became a scared little girl. Now he's just mean, but of course Bill O'Riley laughs at his schtick.

Because the cartoonist are gutless and can't criticize a person of color. Political correctness has forbidden criticism of almost every demographic besides one. The Democrats hide behind political correctness and create a modern day McCarthy style blacklist.

I thought it was because anti-Democrats have no sense of humor they are aware of.

Why are the political cartoons anti-republican? If I were a pro & somebody kept pitching softballs, I'd hit 'em out of the park, too.

There's a large audience that the LJW must appease in "The Little Blue Island". LJW's left-leaning staff is merely a business decision and is no accident. Most newspapers can't make it today, so any manner of manipulation of the content of their publication is open season.

If you want to see but just a small sampling of continued and clear-cut liberal media bias, watch the "Weekday's with Bernie (Goldberg)" segment on The O'Reilly Factor and then watch the "Media Mash" segment on Hannity when Brent Bozell from MRC and Sean tear into the problem of the liberal media bias and their BS.

Funny, I never saw a single anti-Sebelius political cartoon in the LJW, even though there were plenty out there, and plenty about her to make fun of.

The Correct Answer:

The LJWorld staff (like most news agencies) leans left.

Witness the weekly anti-Brownback stories. Did they ever give Sebelius's administration this much scrutiny?

In fairness, there is no "unbiased media" anywhere. They all have leanings. In a left-leaning town, it makes sense that the paper leans left.

The pot needs stirring.

Because those who can't do become artists, of course.

The thing is, comedians and in this case cartoonists will make fun of whoever is available. Right now with all the Republican activities (caucuses and primaries, etc) that's who is in the news more.

Why are all Republicans political cartoons?

Because Republicans are so funny?

Seriously, aren't the Simmons family that own the publication Republican? That the cartoons would sway toward the liberal spectrum seems unlikely.
