If the job of journalism is to speak truth to power, newspaper cartoonists do it with a paintbrush in hand and a tongue-in-cheek. This puts them in the crosshairs of thin-skinned dictators abroad and on “the front lines of the first amendment” at home, as Adam Zyglis, Canisius University, class of 2004, phrases it. Since graduating from the school paper to The Buffalo News as its youngest staffer, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Zyglis has, quite literally, drawn readers’ attention to the issues of the day in a fashion that transcends language and both punches and tickles you in the gut. In episode 9 of Formative, we talk about the escalating backlash and hate felt by journalists thanks to social media; doing your best to fill your own shoes when following esteemed predecessors; and how he uses lies to, ultimately, tell the truth.
