Weekend Open Thread: LA Times, Hire Rob Rogers!




Longtime Pittsburgh Post-Gazette cartoonist Rob Rogers was fired for this Trump cartoon and a few others.

Hey, LA Times, and it’s new ownership!  One of the best cartoonists in the country, with a sensibility very much in tune with Greater LA, was just fired from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for submitting a half-dozen cartoons that were more critical of Trump, Roseanne, and others than that skittish newspaper wanted.

His name is Rob Rogers.  You can read about him on snooes.com.  Snap him up.

You want to make a mark at this moment of taking over the West Coast’s “paper of record” — and this chance just fell into your lap.  Don’t think twice: show your dedication to a free press and pounce on it!

This is your Weekend Open Thread. Talk about that, or anything else you’d like, within reasonable bounds of decency and discretion.

About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Corrupt party hacks hate him. He's OK with that too. He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
