"Paul Conrad has been protecting the American public's First Amendment rights for over 30 years. As the editorial cartoonist for the Los Angeles Times he has made us laugh and think about the American political scene and 11 Presidents.
This bio documentary by PBS is extremely informative and well made. Narrated by Tom Brokow it covers Conrad's career from the time of his graduation from college until his most recent free lance cartoons ribbing the Bush Administration.
The film gives us a unique portrait of a man with moral convictions who stands up for his beliefs no matter what the cost. You may not know very much about Conrad but see this short film and learn. Conrad is truly one of a kind."
