The trouble with Dilbert : how corporate culture gets the last laugh by Norman Solomon( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analyzes Scott Adams' Dilbert cartoons. Dilbert purports to be on the side of the worker against management and to be the spokesman for rebellion against contemporary corporate culture. However, Soloman argues that the popular cartoon is actually a placebo which makes workers complacent with the very corporate culture about which they, and Dilbert, complain, while they continue to do nothing to effect real change
Mission accomplished : wicked cartoons by America's most wanted political cartoonist by Khalil Bendib( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an increasingly Manichean geopolitical world, Bendib happens to be both "Us" and "Them," American and Muslim, a walking oxymoron - a "Clash of Civilizations" made flesh. He is the only American political cartoonist with an in-your-face non-Eurocentric perspective, a voice of the voiceless. Distributed to 1,700 small and mid-size newspapers across North America, Bendib's cartoons are the only widely circulated editorial cartoons free of the usual corporate narrative and they offer a radical, indigenous perspective in a visual medium accessible to all. Bendib's cartoons shine a light on such topics as the corrupting influence of money on democracy, African-American and immigrant issues, environmental degradation, labor and class struggles, U.S. imperialism and Zionism, the scapegoating of Arabs, Muslims and other people of color, as well as the complicity of our Orwellian mass media in maintaining the status quo. Bendib's cartoons are very popular with legions of alternative, educated, left-of-center readers (especially in the Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York and campus towns across the USA, as well as much of Canada, the UK and Australia) hungry for humorous voices of dissent and with many forgotten constituencies in this country, which are slowly becoming a majority: African-Americans, Muslims, Arabs, South Asians, Latinos, immigrants of all stripes, worldwide indigenous communities ravenous for edgy humor reflecting their specific concerns. -- Description from http://www.amazon.com (Nov. 3, 2011)

Filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay takes a journey through the darker corridors of the US media, where global conglomerates call the shots. For decades, their overwhelming influence has distorted news journalism and compromised its values.Tracing the story of media manipulation through the years, Shadows of Liberty poses a crucial question: why have we let a handful of powerful corporations write the news? We're left in no doubt--media reform is urgent and freedom of the press is fundamental."--Container
