In the late 1970s, Bagley began cartooning at the Daily Universe, the student newspaper at Brigham Young University.
"I used to be fairly apolitical" he said of the Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton years. "But George W. Bush radicalized me. It was Republicans finally getting their Shangri-La," he said. "They got their fantasy world: cutting taxes, cutting regulations and throwing their weight around. And it all ended in tears."
Tribune Managing Editor Lisa Carricaburu said Bagley’s skill as a political cartoonist has made him an institution in the community.
The newspaper is "pleased he’s getting the national recognition he deserves," she said. "He is one of many people we are fortunate to have working at The Salt Lake Tribune who make the paper vital to Salt Lake City and Utah."
