Direction : Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words / phrases in the passage are marked to help you to locate them while answering the questions.
The job of the editorial cartoonist has changed considerably since the advent of social media. The editorial cartoon used to be placed on a pedestal; this is no longer the case.
With the advent of 24 x7 news channels, access to breaking news stopped being the privilege of the newsroom. Since an editorial cartoonist's job is to observe and comment through the comic medium, the exclusivity of observation was the first loss.
What they still retained, however,was the space for response, the hollowed 1 political cartoons did not evolve to the video format beyond the occasional Gustakhi Maaf ( a TV program with puppets). The cartoon space of important newspapers could inform readers what political news was 'trending' the previous day. Cartoons began to be shared via email and became 'viral' in the email era. All these changes only served to the cartoonist's space sacrosanct 2 .
But social media changed all that. Today everybody has a space to respond. And there is no exclusivity of observation whatsoever. At times, a child sitting in his bed-room can access expert opinions of distinguished journalists more quickly than an editorial cartoonist can while sitting in a newsroom. He can also respond to it without being bound by the necessary drawing skills. In other words with the creation of memes,the cartoonist's life has changed forever.
