Ten Years Ago

cartoon about media cheerleading Iraq War
Amazing to me that it’s been ten years since I drew this. Seems like only yesterday that I was huddled in my room in a group house, feeling sickened as I watched the first bombs drop on Iraq. We didn’t have cable, so I watched lots of NBC, and let me tell you, it was bad.

    Captured the essence of the NBC approach at the time (and good cartoon profile of Tom Brokaw). It was bad. The culmination of a let’s-go-to-war train that started rolling the previous year and couldn’t be stopped. Regrettably, there have been few boosters from that time who have completely recanted.
