Chapter . Pulitzer Prize: Michael Ramirez

Michael Ramirez of the conservative Investors Business Daily won the Pulitzer Prize in 2008 for this portfolio of twenty cartoons from 2007. It is the second Pulitzer Prize for Michael, who also won in 1994 when he worked for the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

It is interesting that the award comes at this time because Michael was recently laid off from his job as cartoonist for the Los Angeles Times, which now has no editorial cartoonist. The Tribune Company owns The LA Times, The Baltimore Sun, and The Chicago Tribune, all newspapers with a rich tradition of editorial cartooning that no longer employ an editorial cartoonist.

Our congratulations go out to our friend, Michael and to the Investors Business Daily ...
