Jeff Darcy of NEOMG Talks Terrorism and Cartoons

Cartoon by Jeff Darcy, NEOMG'/Used with permission

Jeff Darcy, the Editorial Cartoonist for the Northeast Ohio Media Group responds to the attack by Islamic extremists on the Charlie Hebdo newspaper in Paris.

Darcy defends the right of the newspaper to publish the offensive cartoons, but says he wouldn't produce such offensive work.  He explains the motivation behind his cartoon, pictured above.  And he admits the majority of the critical feedback he receives comes from conservative readers.

The cartoonist also writes editorials that accompany his cartoons online, at cleveland.com.  Here is his response to President Obama's absence from the unity march in Paris.
