Jordyn Noennig in The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Former Milwaukee Journal political cartoonist William (Bill) Sanders died Saturday at the age of 90.
Sanders was a thorn in the side of politicians locally, especially Milwaukee Mayor Henry Maier, but presidents from Richard Nixon to Donald Trump also felt the heat from his pen.

1. The theme for the 21th International Editorial Cartoon Competition is:
Censorship, shaming and disinformation on social media
Social media and its algorithms can spare us from being confronted with contrary opinions, creating echo chambers for our own points of views.
The proliferation of disinformation has turned debates into fights where dialogue is no longer possible, and unpopular opinions are shouted down or cancelled out.
It leaves journalists operating in an environment where facts are often subordinated to lies and propaganda spread online.
As the siege on Capitol Hill has demonstrated, moderating social media is no longer a luxury.
