Daryl Cagle highlights the irony of the New York Times running a contest for budding editorial cartoonists.

There are two famous, unattributed quotes by NY Times editors:

1) We would never hire an editorial cartoonist because we would never give so much power to one man.

2) We would never hire an editorial cartoonist because you can’t edit an editorial cartoonist like you can a writer.

Adding these comments to a litany of equally depressing examples of the newspaper’s modus operandi, Mr. Cagle’s withering assessment of the New York Times can be found here.

Thanks to Terry Anderson for finding this story.

  1. These comments might be unattributed, but you couldn’t make this sort of blinkered, accountant-driven rubbish up, could you ? Tyrants and dictators don’t like [editorial] cartoonists either.
