Front-Page Cartoon Leads Bullying Editorial

On Sunday, the Sioux City Journal devoted its entire front page to an anti-bullying editorial following the suicide of a gay teenager earlier this month. In addition to calling on the community to help end this story of abuse, the front page featured a cartoon by Brian Duffy, the former staff cartoonist at the Des Moines Register who self-syndicates his cartoons throughout the state.

Editors take note – this powerful cover has gone viral on the web and even made the rounds on cable news. Maybe you should include more cartoons and illustrations on your front pages

Here’s the top half of the paper. For the full front page, click here.
