Join Aging in Place Glens Falls PUBLIC SERVICE AD ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS Associated Press COLUMBUS, Ohio — The First Amendment right to free speech is no laughing matter, as illus- trated by a new exhibit at the world’s largest cartoon library. The political cartooning display runs the gamut from a 1774 etching by Paul Revere criticizing Britain’s use of tea as a political weapon to a 2018 cartoon lampooning the blocking of online conser- vative commentary. Other cartoons take on political correctness, flag desecration, fake news, campus conduct codes, and the role of Twitter in public discourse. The exhibit combines drawings contributed by several dozen cartoonists with material from the library’s own collection. Many are from newspa- pers, but offerings include cartoons from The New Yorker magazine and even ones that first appeared online, on websites such as Politico. “We focused on editorial cartoonists and the First Amendment partly be- cause American editorial cartoonists are the only ones in the world whose work is protected by an amendment to the federal constitution of the coun- try,” said museum founder Lucy Caswell, who co-cu- rated the exhibit with Pu- litzer Prize-winning car- toonist Ann Telnaes. Among cartoons on dis- play: — “Get up Kaepernick!! Men died for your right to stand!” protesters shout at former NFL quarter- back Colin Kaepernick, highlighting his decision to kneel during the na- tional anthem to protest racial injustice, in a 2016 cartoon by Ed Hall for Ar- tizans Syndicate. “Actually, we died for his right to sit or stand,” say two soldiers observ- ing the scene in Hall’s drawing. — Angelo Lopez sums up the trend of people walling themselves off from alter- native viewpoints in a 2017 cartoon that appeared on the site Cartoon Move- ment, in which a bound and gagged Uncle Sam listens as protesters shout, “My opinions only!” and “Free speech for those I agree with!” — A 1989 Baltimore Sun cartoon by Kevin Kallaugher featuring a superhero decked out in American flag-themed clothing from head to toe. “I can’t just sit around and watch a bunch of am- ateurs desecrate the flag!” he says. President Donald Trump’s scorn for tradi- tional media inspired sev- eral Trump-related car- toons at the exhibit. Those include a 2017 drawing by Jimmy Margulies of King Features Syndicate that portrays the iconic Twitter bird logo with a Trump hairstyle, sitting in a birdcage lined with newspapers. Margulies said in an email that it’s a challenge not to draw about the president every day, “though he probably does or says several things each day that are worthy of a cartoon.” Telnaes noted that edi- torial cartoons have been an integral part of Ameri- can political discourse for more than 250 years, since “Join, or Die” appeared in Benjamin Franklin’s Pennsylvania Gazette in 1754. Worldwide, they’re an indicator of a nation’s freedom of expression. “If there aren’t car- toonists creating tough, pointed satire against their politicians and pol- icies, you can bet that country and its govern- ment doesn’t tolerate an individual’s right to free speech,” Telnaes said in an email. In a 1971 cartoon by Karl Hubenthal in the now de- funct-Los Angeles Ex- aminer, a smug Supreme Court justice examines the decision upholding the printing of the Pen- tagon Papers. Far below, a woman tugs at his robe and questions “the moral question” of printing stolen government docu- ments. The headline: “Totally ignored.” The inclusion of a car- toon from a long-gone paper underscores one of the biggest challenges for cartoonists: the decline of print newspapers and the elimination of many full- time cartooning jobs. Twenty years ago, the country had about 150 full-time editorial car- toonists, according to Telnaes. Today it’s down to about 40. Just last week, longtime Columbus Dispatch edito- rial cartoonist Nate Beeler lost his job amid a series of nationwide layoffs by GateHouse Media. Beeler has a cartoon in the Ohio State exhibit that satirizes campus free speech “safe spaces.” Concluding a series of Friday tweets about his layoff, Beeler said, “Lastly, my heart goes out to the other cartoonists and journalists across the nation caught up in these layoffs. It’s a devastating trend in the news busi- ness.” While the digital age has created new opportuni- ties, it’s still tough for car- toonists to make a living, Telnaes said. Meanwhile, social media has been both a blessing and a curse. “Social media is both positive in that readers are more engaged and appre- ciative of cartoons but also enables special interest groups to target cartoon- ists and their publications when a cartoon challenges their beliefs and agenda,” she said. In 1988, the U.S. Su- preme Court upheld po- litical cartoons as pro- tected speech in a case involving a Hustler Mag- azine parody ad that lam- pooned the Rev. Jerry Fal- well, founder of the Moral Majority, an ad that’s on display at the Ohio State exhibit. Writing the court’s unanimous decision, Jus- tice William Rehnquist noted that cartoonists have portrayed public fig- ures through the ages in a manner unavailable to a photographer or portrait artist, sketching Abraham Lincoln’s “tall, gangling posture, Teddy Roos- evelt’s glasses and teeth, and Franklin D. Roosevelt’s jutting jaw and cigarette holder.” “From the viewpoint of history, it is clear that our political discourse would have been considerably poorer without them,” Rehnquist wrote. “Front Line: Edito- rial Cartoonists and the First Amendment” runs through October at Ohio State University’s Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum. Exhibit highlights cartoonists’ focus on First Amendment Drive less, bike more. PUBLIC SERVICE AD
