Editorial cartoonist John Sherffius, in receiving the Herblock Prize Tuesday night, criticized Bush-administration policies and lamented that the press is weaker at a time when “one of the most abusive administrations” is in power.
For more on his talk, see the report of ComicsDC blogger Mike Rhode.
Sherffius — who was named the 2008 Herblock Prize recipient last month — has also won the cartooning category of the Wilbur Awards.
The Wilburs, which will be presented April 5 by the Religion Communicators Council, honor secular-media work about religious issues.
Sherffius does his editorial cartoons for the Boulder (Col.) Camera and Copley News Service.
