When it’s your job to follow Trump :(

Not sure that I agree with the hed because it implies Mike Luckovich is not going to draw Trump anymore, but that’s my interpretation of it.

Read the Washington Post story here.

Luckovich’s cartoons can be found here at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The press is necessary to a free society because it does not implicitly trust leaders — from the local planning board to the White House. And it’s not a coincidence that this president — whose financial affairs are murky and whose suspicious pattern of behavior triggered his own Justice Department to appoint an independent counsel to investigate him — has tried so hard to intimidate journalists who provide independent scrutiny.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Good grief! The last thing we need…

… is a tariff that no one asked for that will cost American jobs. More blows to the U.S. NewsPAPER industry.

I’m sure there are more stories and editorials about this, but here are a few:

Tariffs on paper will hurt us, and our readers

You have read about the new tariffs on imported aluminum and steel, and on products from China. Now it seems our own business — newspaper printing and publishing — will take some casualties in a trade war over paper.

Trump’s Tariffs Are Already Costing American Jobs

Tariffs on Canadian paper, imposed at the behest of a New York hedge fund, are claiming 50 U.S. jobs — so far.

US publishers worry about pricier newsprint with new tariffs

Newspaper publishers across the U.S. already strapped by years of declining revenue say they’re dealing with an existential threat: Recently imposed tariffs on Canadian newsprint driving up their business costs.

It’s not surprising that President Trump, after campaigning on the promise of a more aggressive trade policy, would take aim at China. It’s an economic competitor and geostrategic rival with whom the U.S. ran a $375 billion trade deficit in 2017.
