NYT Week in Review readers missing editorial cartoons
Not a scientific poll by any stretch of the imagination, but when The Public Editor asked for reader’s impressions of the new Week in Review format, 15 of the 24 comments mentioned in some way that they wish the editorial cartoons hadn’t been removed.
Here’s a representative quote from Vince Parry of Brooklyn, NY:
I’m with those who miss the late show comedians’ jokes and the political cartoons, but not because they amuse me with some kind of low-brow giggling; rather they provide a richer, in-the-trenches backdrop to the central business of professional reporters doing analysis and commentary.
