Editorial Cartoons And Free Speech
Editorial cartoons have played a role in public discourse since the beginning of the Republic -- and have pushed the limits of free speech, often inviting lawsuits for libel.

This commitment to the First Amendment is on display in an exhibit at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum.
Today on All Sides, editorial cartoons and free speech.
