Sorry, J. J., but your cartoons are still shite!
In a Canadaland “exclusive” this week, alt.right cartoonist J.J. McCullough argued that the Montreal Gazette’s Terry (Aislin) Mosher was “the worst cartoonist in Canada.”
McCullough, who contributes to Reader’s Digest and The Rebel, propaganda channel of White National Party leader Ezra Levant, wrote: “The career of Terry Mosher is a wonderful case study of how far mediocracy [sic] can take you in Canada. Strip away all of Aislin [sic] awards, praise, and reputation, and you’re confronted with an inescapable reality:
“By any objective standard, [Mosher is] producing some real garbage…
“Most of the editorial cartoonists employed in Canada today are neither heroic nor clever. Increasingly, they’re barely even coherent. What they are is merely one more culpable party in the decline of traditional media, whose leading players have done their best to ensure their absence will not be noticed, let alone mourned.
As for not being able to make a go at being an editorial cartoonist himself, McCullough blamed newspaper editors for hiring too many “single white guys,” (huh?), boomer readers for fearing change and editorial cartooning itself for being a “dead art.”
Furthermore, Canadian newspaper cartooning is not “a remotely meritocratic enterprise.”
On the other hand, J. J., maybe it’s just because your work is real garbage!
