Take a peek over Jim Borgman's shoulder


Jim Borgman has been the Enquirer's editorial cartoonist since 1976. Borgman has won every major award in his field, including the 1991 Pulitzer Prize, the National Cartoonists Society's Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year in 1993, and most recently, the Adamson Award in 2005 as International Cartoonist of the Year. His award-winning daily comic strip Zits, co-created with Jerry Scott, chronicles the life of 15-year-old Jeremy Duncan, his family and friends through the glories and challenges of the teenage years. Since debuting in July 1997, Zits has regularly finished #1 in reader comics polls across America and is syndicated in more than 1300 newspapers around the world.

Insightful and clever as always Jim - but lets not forget that the folks at your paper are just as guilty as anyone else. I thought my fellow bloggers and I were focused on ourselves. But now thanks to some of the features on the Enquirer website anyone can submit an article to the newspaper about, for example, the fact that their cat has piles.

Presto! They're a "citizen journalist".

And you'll excuse me if I roll my eyes a little at the idea that self-absorption in the media is a recent invention. For the past 30 years every space launch is a faint shadow of Apollo, every music trend is compared to the 60s, each political scandal is a ‘gate of some kind and any new military conflict is inevitably compared to Vietnam. It would seem like the boomers who currently manage the media have a limited set of templates with which they interpret the news … don’t you think?

Great cartoon! Not sure who is too blame but it is a sad state of affairs that the Marcus case does not make national news but Britney's baby does.

Also I agree with Brendan about the new Enquirer feature. When I read about it I thought it sounded cool. It is hard to find important local news these days but the site is already overrun with junk and I know longer go to it since it is hard to sort through the junk.
