The sacking of cartoonist Michael Leunig from The Age newspaper has “serious ramifications” for freedom of expression in the Australian media, says Digital Editor Jack Houghton.
Leunig’s cartoons have featured in The Age since 1969, but he was recently axed from the newspaper’s Monday editorial page after one of his cartoons satirised the Victorian Andrews government’s mandatory vaccination policies.
Mr Houghton noted the cartoonist has “consistently expressed views from a left of centre perspective”.
“But no matter how woke you are, they’ll come for you eventually,” he said.
“It is worth noting that although The Age has axed his cartoons from the editorial page, for some reason they have been deemed still appropriate for its weekly Spectrum section.
“But here is the worst thing about this entire saga: after decades and decades of service to a news organisation, the moment he doesn’t toe the editorial line, he’s ousted through a phone call.”
So Dan owns the state? Hopefully all the people who love being governed hard will move there. I'm sure there will be cheap houses for sale soon.
SIMPLE……BOYCOTT THE AGE. ! ! !
LETS GO BRANDON. .!
Sooner or later they will cancel themselves.
And why do we have to conform and agree with what the government says?
Newspapers don't allow anything that resembles truth these days.
Communism is definitely coming in through the back door. There will be a backlash and the sooner the better.
Just another example of the death of 'democracy' … …… ……… 369
