Political cartoons that move
Mark Fiore, a self-syndicated cartoonist, last week became the first cartoonist to win the Pulitzer Prize for work that does not appear in print. Fiore's animated political cartoons appear on various Web sites, including the San Francisco Chronicle's sfgate.com. ABC's Diane Sawyer talks to Mark Fiore about his craft.
Class discussion: Do animated political cartoons like Fiore's grab your attention more than traditional newspaper political cartoons do? Do you think your parents or your teachers will react to the animations the same way you might? Is this the future for political commentary for your generation? What topics might be more suitable for static print political cartoons rather than animated political cartoons?
