Mr. Rogers joined The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette as an editorial cartoon. . He worked there until this week. In 1999, he was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.
'After so many years of punch lines and caricatures, skewering mayors and mullahs, the new regime at The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette decided that The Donald trumped satire when it came to its editorial pages.I was trained in a tradition in which editorial cartoonists are the live wires of a publication -- the “constant irritant.” Our job is to provoke readers in a way words alone can’t. Cartoonists are not illustrators for a publisher’s politics. Things really changed for me in March, when management decided that my cartoons about the president were “too angry” and said I was “obsessed with Trump.” This about a president who has declared the free press one of the greatest threats to our country.'
