Editorial cartooning, the art of political incorrectness

In this «new world», broadly open and connected, press cartoonists (who are both journalists, artists and comedians) are shattered time after time! The «New YorkTimes affair» is a case study that crystallizes all the difficulties faced by the profession: the political-economic-religious censorship, sensitivities overwhelmed by the controversy over the social networks, the surrender of some press editorial offices when the strom comes up…. In that world surrounded by images, has art of satire and impertinence, which is at the heart of the press cartoon, became more difficult today than yesterday? This is a very serious matter! Don’t we want to «learn to laugh again», do we? To face the evils of our times and the fragility of our democracies with distance, intelligence and critical thinking? The press cartoonists can help us to deal with it. but… are we, readers, up to the challenge on freedom of expression?
