An editorial cartoonist fired by a major US newspaper has found a new way to share his opinions.

Rob Rogers was let go after a publisher rejected his drawings criticising President Donald Trump.

The cartoons are now on display at the George Washington University’s Corcoran School of the Arts and Design where Rogers spoke to Al Jazeera about his work and freedom of the press.

Free expression, by definition, means you can express yourself freely. Yes you will be subject to criticism abd counter argument and possible loss of public support, so these are consequences. However, being fired for expressing a view, while performing tasks ynder the purview of your jib, is not a "consequence", it is the forceful stifling of the ability to express our opinions, and it is the road to totalitarianism. People, our free press is just as important as our military in protecting our freedoms, do not fall for this free speech has consequences talking point. Freedom of speech is a cornerstone of our country. Don't sell it out.
