Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I had the BBC in mind when I made that comment.

But then the BBC won't describe Putin like that guy you quoted, would it? (Not that the BBC is unbiased.) For some other examples - the Guardian ran Steve Bell's cartoons with chimpanzee Bush from the start, German DER SPIEGEL used to have a cover in 2002 with all leading members of the Bush admin dressed as comics superheroes. In fact I used to battle some Americans on the internet at the time who took patriotic offense at Europeans' view that their President is an idiot. (The irony of which of course was that that view was already shared by quite few Americans.)

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
