Outsourcing America Exposed!

Here's a fun project I'm working on with the amazing crew at PRWatch and the Center for Media & Democracy.  (These are the people that exposed ALEC.)  You would not believe what they're revealing about the spread of privatization across the country.  From privatized water, roads and parking meters to privatized, um, government.  It's really pretty awful.  You can find out more on their incredibly well-researched and extraordinarily-footnoted wiki page here.  
 
Ahhh, how I would love this powerful team of researchers/journalists/lawyers/rabble-rousers backing up each of my cartoons.
 
 
 
 
Oh, and yes, these are the people that worked with me to create this animation:

For Your Fridge! (Or computer.)

"Breaking News Consumer's Handbook" is one of the better, funnier attempts at preventing journalists and humans from making an ass of themselves during a breaking news event.  Came across this on the Twittertube from On the Media.

Republican Doomsday Cult from MarkFiore on Vimeo.

In his latest animation, “Republican Doomsday Cult” — during which the narrator explains, “We must cut everything. Lest the devil of compromise returns” — the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist posits that Republicans John A. Boehner of Ohio, Paul D.

Republican Doomsday Cult

Sure, it seems extreme, but extreme times call for extreme cartoons.  When you have the Republican Speaker of the House threatening a national default, food stamps being slashed while farm subsidies are increased and an attempt to defund a program that has been in existence for four years, things have gone to crazy-land.
