Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – January 16, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (January 9nd through January 16th 2021).

The news was dominated by President Trump and continuing fallout from the insurrection at the Capitol, but as usual, no cartoons depicting Trump were popular with editors. Four of the Top Ten cartoons are about the pandemic.

Jeff Koterba had another incredible week taking the #1 and #8 spots. Dave Whamond also had a fantastic week, taking home three prizes for #6, #9 and #10.

Congratulations to the other CagleCartoonists who made the Top Ten list this week: Kevin Siers, Dave Granlund, John Cole, Randy Enos and Gary McCoy.

The Koterba and Granlund top two cartoons each got about twice as many reprints as the #3 – even so, we’re back to the normal pattern of the Top Ten cartoons dominating all the rest of the cartoons and the top two being extra big hits.

The Top Ten cartoons are what most readers see since only 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints. Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com


Our reader supported site, Cagle.com, still needs you!  Journalism is threatened with the pandemic that has shuttered newspaper advertisers. Some pundits predict that a large percentage of newspapers won’t survive the pandemic economic slump, and as newspapers sink, editorial cartoonists who depend on newspapers sink too, and along with them, our Cagle.com site.

Social Media and Stifling Free Speech

Cartoon by the great Dario Castillejos from Oaxaca, Mexico

I wrote a syndicated newspaper column yesterday. Here it is.

While the mainstream media is rightfully focused on the second impeachment of President Trump and the assault on the Capitol, right wing media is obsessed with “Freedom of Speech.”

Right wing outlets are calling for action against the “censorship” of conservatives by big, liberal, tech companies after Twitter, Facebook and other social media sites banned President Trump, taking away his preferred megaphone. The radical social media platform Parler was shut down after Amazon refused to continue hosting the site.

I run a newspaper syndicate for editorial cartoons and columns. Half of America’s daily, paid-circulation newspapers subscribe to my service, which features about 75 political cartoonists and ten columnists. Sometimes I choose to “kill” a cartoon or column that I think is inappropriate, which often leads to an angry response from the creator about censorship and First Amendment rights. I always remind them that I have First Amendment rights too, and I can choose to syndicate whatever I want.

I also hear from cartoonists whom I don’t syndicate, demanding to be on my Web site as some kind of entitlement, claiming that I’m violating their rights by refusing to allow their voice to be heard. I also hear from cartoonists in nations with no press freedom about how their government censors their cartoons; they claim this is “just the same as in America” because there are editors here who kill cartoons, too.

Cartoonists don’t seem to understand that our First Amendment rights of free speech and a free press are protections only against censorship by the government, and they don’t give cartoonists a right to be reprinted in any publication or a right to avoid editors. Cartoonists don’t have the right to be syndicated, or to be reprinted in newspapers, and no one has the First Amendment right to force Twitter or Facebook to post their rants.

If I syndicate anything that violates the rights of third parties, I can be sued. Potential liability encourages people to act responsibly. President Trump wants to strike back at social media companies by repealing “Section 230,” which generally protects these companies from liability for third party content, treating the social media sites more like telephone companies that aren’t held responsible for what people say on their telephones.

Defenders of Section 230 argue that big tech can’t be expected to police the billions of posts on their sites. This is nonsense.

Social media sites may not be liable for user posts that libel or incite violence, but they are liable for copyright infringement, and there are millions of posts that violate copyrights, especially involving cartoons. Congress imposed rules on big tech in the “Digital Millennium Copyright Act” (DMCA) that created a procedure for copyright holders to demand that a hosting company remove infringing content within a short time period, and if they don’t, the hosting company can be sued.

As a cartoonist and syndicate guy, I’ve filed hundreds of these “DMCA notices,” and in every case the hosting company has followed the procedure properly and responded to take down the content before their deadline. Some people complain about abuses of the DMCA system, but the system works, and it proves that tech companies can comply with millions of demands from injured third parties.

Why should tech companies have liability protections for some kinds of third party content (libel or incitement to violence) and not for others (copyright infringement)? Big tech can and should be liable for any harm they do.

The Section 230 protections for big social media companies should be repealed. But that’s not really what conservatives want, because removing these protections will make the tech companies act even more responsibly, prompting them to remove even more voices from the far right.

Calls to repeal Section 230 have been diminishing as conservatives begin to see this irony, replaced by calls for big tech monopolies to be broken up, replaced by condemnations of “censorship,” and replaced by demands for “Free Speech” that use the same goofy logic I hear from cartoonists.

Republican Infighting

Right now the House is debating President Trump’s second impeachment and a few, prominent Republicans have indicated their support for impeachment – a stark departure from the last impeachment that has split the Republican party.
The Republicans who are arguing against impeachment are described as cowed by Trump and fearful of their on political future and safety. I don’t believe it. It sounds to me like these guys drank the Kool-Aid and believe what they are saying.

Trump’s claims of a stolen election likely led to the election of the two Senate candidates in Georgia and Democratic control of the Senate. A few Republicans, like Liz Cheney and possibly Mitch McConnell can see that the GOP faces self-destruction if the continue to support their fascist fans.

Ted Cruz Monkey Poop

Today’s cartoon is based on one of my oldies that was based on a famous cartoon by the great British cartoonist, Steve Bell.  I’m a big Steve Bell fan.

Editors don’t like poop in cartoons, and this one isn’t likely to get much ink, but it makes me happy. Here’s the Steve Bell cartoon it is based on. Bell told a funny story at an old editorial cartoonists convention about how he had to negotiate with his editor about how many poops on the wall would be acceptable. I’m my own editor, and I can have as many poops as I want – still, I envy the British cartoonists who can get away with much stronger, nastier cartoons than American cartoonists can.

One more thing … I think editorial cartoonists who use labels are sissies, and I used a lot of labels here, but I didn’t label Ted Cruz, I only labeled his poop – an important distinction.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – January 9, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (January 2nd through January 9th 2021).

This week was dominated by the news of President Trump inciting a mob to assault the Capitol and 7 out of the 10 cartoons are on this topic, and the three cartoons on other topics were drawn before Wednesday’s insurrection. Editors resist reprinting cartoons that depict president Trump, but the news this week was severe enough that two drawings of Trump made the Top Ten.

The Top Ten cartoons are what most readers see since only 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints. This week the curve was flattened a bit as the top cartoons got less reprints than usual and more cartoons did relatively well.

Another fascinating thing about the week is the incredible performance of Jeff Koterba who has the #1, #3, #4 and #8 cartoons on the Top Ten list, dominating American newspaper editorial pages for the week!

Congratulations to the other CagleCartoonists who made the Top Ten list this week: John Darkow, Ed Wexler, Dave Whamond, Steve Sack, Chris Weyant and Adam Zyglis.

Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com

Republican Sedition Rotten Tomatoes

Why is it that big news always seems to happen when I’m bogged down in year-end syndicate accounting muck? This is an important time for editorial cartoons even when I’m facing a bunch of tax filing deadlines – so here are a couple of quickies. I revamped an old cartoon with a new speech balloon for today’s revised GOP sedition sedition cartoon that is much better than the oldie that got little ink.

I don’t revise cartoons very often, but this one seemed nice, and I labeled it so the few editors who printed the oldie years ago, can avoid being embarrassed by printing a similar cartoon that some readers might remember.

I have another old favorite that I drew when Barack Obama won his presidential election. This is Republican elephants showing their anguish in the form of Picasso’s Guernica.

What is old is new again – except that it seems to get worse the next time.

Attacking Democracy

It will be interesting to see if the cartoons criticizing Trump will get reprinted this week, after president incited the violence on Capitol Hill.

Newspaper editors don’t like to print cartoons about Trump. I thought I would take a more “optimistic” view than most of the cartoonists who were drawing battered and bruised symbols of democracy – my democracy bounces back.  See my archive here.

Here are a couple from Jeff Koterba.

Jeff is optimistic too, at least if you look at his eagle cartoons in this order.  I almost started drawing the feet idea with them trampling on the flag, but I didn’t.  Maybe I should.

Here’s Bill Day’s battered eagle.

Bulgarian CagleCartoonist Christo “Komar” Komarnitsky drew Trump assaulting the Statue of Liberty.

Pat Byrnes 2020 Top Ten

Here are Pat Byrnes’  Top Ten cartoons of the year that were most reprinted in newspapers.  Pat is a great cartoon illustrator, a prolific gag cartoonist and a regular in The New Yorker Magazine.

We keep statistics on how many editors, who subscribe to our syndicate service at CagleCartoons.com, download each cartoon. Over the next few days I’ll post Top Ten cartoons from some of our other CagleCartoonists!  See Pat’s cartoon archive on Cagle.com

Merry Christmas!


Our reader supported site, Cagle.com, still needs you!  Journalism is threatened with the pandemic that has shuttered newspaper advertisers. Some pundits predict that a large percentage of newspapers won’t survive the pandemic economic slump, and as newspapers sink, editorial cartoonists who depend on newspapers sink too, and along with them, our Cagle.com site.

The world needs political cartoonists more now than ever. Please consider supporting Cagle.com and visit Cagle.com/heroes.

Top Ten Cartoons of the Week – January 2, 2021

Here are our most reprinted cartoons of last week (December 26th through January 2nd 2021).

Eight of the cartoons are on a New Years theme. As usual, there are no cartoons about Trump or Biden. Editors were most interested in cartoons about how terrible 2020 was.

The Top Ten cartoons are what most readers see since only 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints.

The top cartoons on the list performed especially well, and the top three each would have been a number one cartoon in a normal week. Congratulations to #1 Dave Whamond, #2 Dave Granlund and #3 Bruce Plante!

And kudos to the other cartoonists on the Top Ten this week: Jeff Koterba, Rick McKee, Pat Byrnes, John Darkow, Gary McCoy, Randall Enos and Peter Kuper!

Our Top Ten is a measure of how many editors choose to reprint each of our cartoons, from the 62 cartoonists in our CagleCartoons.com syndication package. Just about half of America’s daily, paid circulation newspapers (around 700 papers) subscribe to CagleCartoons.com


Our reader supported site, Cagle.com, still needs you!  Journalism is threatened with the pandemic that has shuttered newspaper advertisers. Some pundits predict that a large percentage of newspapers won’t survive the pandemic economic slump, and as newspapers sink, editorial cartoonists who depend on newspapers sink too, and along with them, our Cagle.com site.
