A Few Chips Off the Herblock

Swell and important doc on the masterful, and funny, editorial cartoonist tonight on HBO, watch for repeats.  When I was editing Editor & Publisher we picked him in 2000 as one of the 25 most influential newspaper people of the century.   The doc shows why.  I'll run a few of his classics below.  First, one featured in the film, pure genius at the time of Watergate (which, by the way, Herb nailed within days of the break-in).  Below that, from decades back, on the gun lobby.  And then nailing Joe McCarthy--four years before Edward R. Murrow did it.
