Victor Navasky: Why Political Cartoons Are So Powerful

Adolf Hitler once commissioned a book of cartoons responding to British cartoonist, and serial ridiculer, David Low. “What they don’t want to be thought as is an ass, who is a joke,” says Nation publisher emeritus Victor Navasky, about people in power. “These cartoons give rise to jokes, but they’re very serious.” Navasky joins The Cycle to discuss Hitler, Obama, Kissinger and his new book, The Art of Controversy.
