The Sound Of One House Sloshing

Last month, I commented on an article from the Columbia Journalism Review by Jesse Sunenblick entitled “The Murder of Political Illustration.” The gist of the article was that major newspapers have abandoned publishing political illustrations that are controversial or have their own narrative. Since reading the piece, I have been more aware of this impoverishment. However, I did like the illustration in this Sunday’s NYT Week In Review accompanying the lead: “Discipline Takes a Break at the White House.”

(The image is by John Hendrix. Interestingly, the work on his site is not that political.)
