MEDIAWATCH: In praise of Rod Emerson


Rod Emerson has always been a great cartoonist.

His wit, his political satire, his drawing skills as a cartoonist are all amazing, but over the last 6 months Rod has just been knocking it out of the park!

It’s a rare joy seeing someone you respect hit a season of pure gold.

This must be what being a Swiftie feels like.

TDB Recommends

All hail Rod, he is having a golden season!

  1. Well said Martyn. Rod Emerson nails it every time. His work is one of the bright spots in our dismal local paper up North.

    • Someone in that cartoon should have stood on him when they had the chance.

      But that’s our problem. We don’t recognise what a nasty bite these little insects have in this beautiful benign country.
