There are many ways in which we speak truth to power. One of them is humor. And that is one of the staples of our Sunday editorials. But the column and the accompanying caricature don’t just go for cheap laughs. They are always well-sourced and insightful. 

Here are some of our favorites from 2022.

Bipartisanship in All the Wrong Places

Donald Trump and his family have shown the urgent need to strengthen ethics and anti-corruption laws. But because these problems plague both parties, there is very little appetite to do so.

On Abortion, US Gets What It Deserves

Help Us, Dominion… You Are Our Only Hope

Fox News is in the business of lies and propaganda; settling the occasional defamation suit is just a cost of doing that business. But now, a couple of voting machine companies can make Fox News and the Murdochs pay a much steeper price than money.

Schrödinger’s Brat: What Is Happening to Hunter Biden Is Both Good and Bad
