Wash Post: ‘Doonesbury’ Cartoonist Trudeau Hails Media ‘Golden Age’

September 20th, 2018 11:14 AM
If you’re a Trump hater, you never have to look very hard for media that confirm your disdain. So why on earth would The Washington Post culture writer Michael Cavna interview forgotten-but-not-gone Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau? Nostalgia for ironic liberal commentary on the Iran-Contra affair?

Sunday 'Doonesbury' Puts Breitbart Reporter in Full KKK Regalia

December 18th, 2016 8:27 AM
The liberal comic strip Doonesbury is only current on Sundays these days. Every other day is reruns from the past, “Classic Doonesbury,” like there is such a thing. On the last Sunday before Christmas, Garry Trudeau is having fun as liberals typically do: he imagines Donald Trump hating all reporters except the submissive fanboy from Breitbart News....and the Breitbart guy is dressed…

August 30th, 2016 11:36 PM
The Washington Post interviewed Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau for Tuesday's Style section and highlighted how he said if Trump wins, "I'll miss civilization as we know it."

Lefty 'Doonesbury' Creator Uses Fake But Accurate Defense for Comic

December 30th, 2014 4:28 PM
Talk about out of touch. Gary Trudeau, the very liberal creator of the Doonesbury comic strip, is defending his promotion of a now discredited rape accusation at the University of Virginia. In the November 28 strip, a mother rails against the school, which was smeared by a false story in Rolling Stone. She lectures her daughter, "Sam...You're not going to UVA!" 

NYT Mag Fawned Over Doonesbury Creator, Got Testy With Rep. Steve King

December 14th, 2014 8:03 PM
Two recent Q&A sessions by New York Times reporter Jim Rutenberg for the paper's Sunday magazine made for a convenient encapsulation of the paper's liberal double standards, with challenging, testy questions thrown at conservative Iowa Rep. Steve King in this Sunday's edition, versus a sympathetic, almost fawning session with lefty "Doonesbury" cartoonist Gerry Trudeau…

NY Times Lets Doonesbury Creator Mock Reagan, Celebrate Obama's Brain

November 10th, 2014 11:33 AM
Garry Trudeau, creator of the once-famous, sometimes controversial, always smugly liberal political cartoon Doonesbury, was interviewed for the New York Times Sunday magazine contrasting Ronald Reagan's "damaged brain" with Obama's, which contains "layers of complexity." The cartoonist's clear spite for the Bush family comes through, as he repeats a classless joke… Greenlights New Satire of Republicans by Liberal Cartoonist

May 30th, 2013 8:36 AM
Even when TV shows are green-lighted in new and daring online forums, they still have a liberal bias! Emily Yahr of The Washington Post reports Amazon Studios has approved two new comedies, and one of them is “Alpha House,” a satire of a rental house of four oafish Republican senators "living like frat brothers" by liberal “Doonesbury” cartoonist Garry Trudeau…

'Doonesbury' Pimps Worst Palin Rumors: NBA-Sexing, Racist, Airheaded S

September 15th, 2011 2:28 PM
NBC may have lowered itself to an "exclusive" interview with author Joe McGinniss today -- something they did NOT do in 1993 when McGinniss drew universal condemnation for a sleazy Ted Kennedy biography titled The Last Brother. But Garry Trudeau has devoted almost a week now to spreading McGinniss gossip in his Doonesbury comic strips, with all the worst charges: she slept with NBA…

Doonesbury Makes Sexist Breast Jokes About Palin and Bachmann

September 5th, 2011 12:10 PM

Doonesbury Hates God in Christmas Day Comic Strip

December 25th, 2010 10:47 PM
Newspaper readers probably had raised eyebrows on Christmas Day if they saw Doonesbury's comic strip for this sacred day. A female social worker is chatting with a female soldier and asking her if she gets support out in the field. They have this exchange: SOLDIER: Yes, ma'am, I talk to our chaplain. SOCIAL WORKER: Good. A chaplain can be a good resource. SOLDIER: Mine yells at…

April 23rd, 2009 1:50 PM
Garry Trudeau, the leftist author/artist of the comic strip Doonesbury, gave an interview about Twitter to the Mediabistro blog WebNewser, where he displayed his snooty distaste for "populist pandering" to the little people.

John Harwood Has Never Seen This Cartoon

July 16th, 2008 8:03 AM
How insulated is the MSM? In how much of a liberal cocoon does it exist? For an answer, consider the vile cartoon displayed here.  My guess is that the great majority of NewsBusters readers are familiar with it.  But John Harwood—of the New York Times and CNBC—has never seen it.That became clear on today's Morning Joe. The topic was the TV comedy world's double-standard, in which Republicans are…
