Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Burris Himself Alive


Roland Burris is a fellow, we now know, who leaves nothing to chance. He has actually supervised the creation of his own monument, extolling the legend that he, at this moment, is still busy creating. Today he was asked why he didn’t mention, during the impeachment hearings for Blagojevich, that he had discussed money with the governor’s brother in the negotiations over getting the Senate seat. He replied, “It is not upon a person to go out of his way on anything. It is the person who has to ask the questions.”

Hope he likes it where he’s going.

IT'S TIME TO TALK ABOUT MEDIA BIAS

We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.

So we're hoping to raise $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall. Read our argument for journalism that is fair and accurate and stands for something—and join us with a tax-deductible monthly donation (or make a one-time gift) if you agree.
