Editorial page professionalism

As I searched for the Mike Ramirez political cartoons (below), and found them on the LA Times website, I remembered noticing an interesting phenomenon. Many newspapers deliberately run political cartoons the political sympathies of which are opposite to those prevailing with the editorial staff. This is admirable and in keeping with high standards of journalism and ethics.

And it is entirely absent from newspapers infected with Bush Derangement Syndrome.
