Pamela, a regular guest of CNN, Fox News, The Washington Post and The New York Times had this to say about the contest finalists and winner:
(IOTW) Really great stuff. I hate that liberal feel good crap, ‘you are all winners!’, but there was more than one that deserved the crown. The importance of the message was a consideration I took into account as well. The Meesh art was particularly biting …. but this is an election year and that is a fight. And I mean knock-down-drag-out-save-the-free-world fight.
In a just world, these artists/illustrators would be influencing the culture and media in a much wider, far larger national arena, but the culture is under siege given the low state of the world. These talented readers are guerrilla fighters in the information battle-space. Hey, it’s what we do. And their talents were never so desperately needed. If I had the dough I’d be running these posters on the back of Time, Newsweak, Rolling Stone etc.
Of course none of this would be possible without SHN’s loyal readers and the nomination from ‘rightwingfeather‘. Thank you wherever, whomever you are.
SHN UPDATE: Now might be a good time to mention that Sad Hill News, a 1.3-year-old conservative ‘racist’ news site, hit the 2,000,000 mark a couple months back. I’m mighty grateful to you (the reader), those lurking on Facebook and the numerous sites that carry SHN (see ‘Sites Featuring Sad Hill News‘ in the right-hand column; scroll down).
An interesting phenomenon has taken place, and it started just before Thanksgiving. Life has required more of my time, reducing the frequency of posts I’m able to produce and therefore the number of comments folks leave behind – yet readership has increased (DBKP also noticed – Thanks!). So, for now I will continue thinking of SHN as my ‘community service’, or way of ‘writing my Congressman’ while hoping, praying it’s more effective.
Thank you all for growing Sad Hill News!
I’ll leave you with last year’s 2 most popular (linked/shared/ripped-off) SHN graphics:
