AUSTRALIA'S NEWSPAPER CARTOONISTS are all left-wing, according to Canberra Times cartoonist Geoff Pryor. Pryor was talking to a panel of school students at the National Museum broadcast on Radio National this morning.

They're bound to be anti-Government, but why are they all left? Have you ever seen a cartoon of our favourite union thugs' antics, or of that egregious Pakistani illegal migrant and litigant, Mr Baktiari?

Pryor himself is one of the best. Whether you like his angle or not, you can enjoy his wit.

Compare that with Henny Herald's Alan Moir, whose cartoons are political tracts.
