The Restoration

Origen: la revista satírica Cu-Cut!, published in 1905
Purpose: the intention of this cartoon was to joke about the military during the Restoration  
Value: this cartoon caused quite an outrage, leading to new laws being passed that allowed offenses regarding the flag or mother country to be tried by the military courts
Limitations: this cartoon is not easily understood by just glancing at it, once I researched it a little I could understand the significance

Can you think of any other examples of some form of media having so much of an impact that it actually changed laws?
