The above David Horsey cartoon about the torture of military prisoners has riled up some readers of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, plus probably a few people pointed towards the two-time Pulitzer Prize winner's cartoon because of its strident political point. Story from Editor & Publisher. Again, what's interesting here is how different critics come at the cartoon and the level of invective used. I can't imagine Horsey is any danger nor will he tone things down to please critics, but I imagine there are cartoonists out there in less secure positions. It's also just plain unsettling that we've reached a point where people can seriously conceive of an editorial cartoon as a treasonous act.
