It’s really useful and worthwhile to compare different perspectives on the same situation as it is seen around the world, or even in the same place – from different publications! 

 

A small sampler:

 

Daryl Cagle’s Professional Cartoonist’s Index – Political Cartoons from around the world!

Political Cartoons as Primary Sources from the Library of Congress, a great source for teachers

It's No Laughing Matter -- Political Cartoon analysis instructional website for secondary students, from the Library of Congress, interactive!

 

 

From Los Angeles:

Los Angeles Times Los Angeles’s major newspaper in English

La Opinion – LA’s major Spanish-language newspaper, owned by the same corporation as the Los Angeles Times

Los Angeles Daily News – Los Angeles’ second major daily newspaper

 

Worldwide Coverage:

CNN-United States Coverage

CNN- World Coverage
