The power of a comic

Here is a comic frame that summarizes what so many of my presentations present in about 35 minutes. Bravo for Matthew Inman, its creator

This is the weekend edition of TheMarioBlog and will be updated as needed. The next blog post is Monday, Dec. 11.

 

 

 

Ok, so Matthew Inman, whose website is called The Oatmeal, and who is brilliant with his comic “tiles” that teach us interesting lessons about daily lives, is not what you would call a media expert.

But to me, with this frame, he has turned into one.

There is nothing I need to say, except that every editor, designer and publisher should print this and hang it around the newsroom. Better yet, make it the wallpaper on your phone screen. Look at it often.

Bravo, Matthew.

Pages we like: here is how our client, Gulf News, of Dubai, covered the breaking news of President Trump declaring that he will move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. In an editorial by editor in chief, Abdulhamid Ahmad, the newspaper declared:

Trump dared to do and challenge what all Presidents have never dared. We know the issue of Jerusalem has been used by all politicians running for the post of US President to garner votes from the Israeli lobby, but not one of them fulfilled their promise.

And it seems that all the politicians who surround Trump and give him counsel did not explain to him the dangerous consequences.
