* not comics: the tone-deaf quality and general stupidity of this posturing response by a newspaper advocacy group to a critical but comedic segment of John Oliver's HBO show should discourage anyone that is hoping for newspapers to correct their tailspin for the sake of their being a traditional home for comics. This guy doesn't even engage the substance of the criticisms, and makes it sound like Oliver was randomly making fun of things. The lack of in-depth engagement would terrify me if my paper were giving this organization money.
* not comics: drama. It's tough to be a person in the world.
