The Oregonian, which has a long history of running ads designed to mock Oregon and the state’s politics, has a new campaign featuring a caricature of former Republican Gov.
Kate Brown and her family.
The ad, which is running on the Oregon-owned newspaper’s website, is set to air on the Portland-owned paper’s front page Wednesday.
“Kate Brown’s family is a family of three,” reads the ad, showing a shot of Brown at her home and the family sitting at a table.
“They have four kids.”
The ad features a cartoon of the Brown family holding up a framed copy of the Oregon Constitution.
“The Constitution has been amended to allow the legislature to pass laws,” reads one caption.
“And that means Kate Brown has been a good governor.
And now, the governor’s family can use their power to defend Oregon and its citizens from those who would try to take our democracy away.”
The cartoon also features a woman in a yellow sweater reading the Constitution.
The Oregonian ad was created by the Oregon chapter of the Committee to Protect Journalists, a nonprofit that monitors media coverage in the state.
The committee was created in the wake of the deadly attacks on the U.S. Capitol and the U,S.
military in September.
The committee has been critical of media coverage of the current political climate in the U.,S.
The group is also running ads in support of Brown, who has been criticized for using public funds to pay for her family’s legal defense.
The Portland newspaper did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.
