This cartoon begins with the headline “Mainstream media reporting on the establishment”. Beneath that are two columns with the following subheadings; a red box labelled “don’t say” and a green box labelled “do say”. Each point in the don’t say column has a red cross beside it, each point in the do say column has a green tick beside it. The list in the columns is as follows:
Don’t say Incompetent.
Do say mismanaged, indecisive, ill-judged.
Don’t say racist.
Do say unique sense of humour, gaffe prone, blunt.
Don’t say corrupt.
Do say technically within rules, questions will be raised, cronyism.

We need you to help out, if you can.
When you give a monthly amount to fund our work, you are supporting truly independent journalism. We hold power to account and have weathered many attempts to shut us down and silence the counterpoint to the mainstream.
