Counterpoint Moving to a Paid Subcription

Sign up now for 30% off the subscription price!

Last year was a tough one for political cartoonists. One of Counterpoint’s own award-winning artists lost his job after a cartoon criticizing the U.S. president’s approach to immigration went viral on Twitter, and some major publications—most notably the New York Times international edition—announced they’ll stop printing cartoons for good. 

No one else is working on new ways to keep cartooning alive, and that’s why we’re here.

If it was already tough to be a cartoonist, it has since gotten harder. In this global health crisis, advertisers are hesitant and marketing budgets are slimming down. We are turning to you to keep Counterpoint—and political cartooning—alive.

Here at Counterpoint, we know the value political cartoons create. They have shaped our country from its earliest days (how could we overlook Benjamin Franklin’s Join, or Die!?), and they create the kind of political environment our country needs right now: a balanced, uncensored debate with enough humor to make these critical topics approachable for the dinner table. A nation divided by opinion cannot stand, but a nation built on respectful debate will land on the best possible consensus. Cartoons can help us get there.

Help us fund this Pulitzer Prize-winning art with a paid subscription. Get 30% off for the life of your subscription, if you sign up before April 3!

If you’d like to stay involved, please purchase a subscription—and better yet, refer your friends.

Save the ‘toons!

— Your Counterpoint team
