In the words of Green Lacer Kevin Kirk, “This is today’s (4/16/15) Newsday political cartoon. Matt Davies’ cartoon is ill conceived and not even the slightest bit funny. The cartoon’s “irony” wreaks of desperation on the part of Newsday in its efforts to prop up Common Core support (through propaganda) to its readers. This cartoon simply exposes just how desperate Newsday has become in this endeavor. Instead of reporting the news, Newsday’s brand of advocacy “journalism” has exposed Newsday as the Fox News of Common Core.”


Pictures are worth a 1,000 words, unless you’re Matt Davies of Newsday.  His pictures are worth far less so he had to add the following caption:


It is clear that Matt has not dedicated much time to learning about the opt out movement.  From the looks of it, he hasn’t dedicated much time to his cartoons or humor either.

Matt & our friends at Newsday, we have a cartoon for you:
