Does the reader always know best?

Illustrator Prakash S redraws a classic 1940s cartoon that captures the dilemma that every journalist faces at the hands of readers who thinks we are a bunch of buffoons who get everything wrong, and that we have a hidden agenda behind everything we do.

“WHY CAN’T THEY PRODUCE A FAIR, BALANCED, NONPARTISAN, OBJECTIVE NEWSPAPER—THAT REFLECTS MY POINT OF VIEW!?”
