A conservative cartoonist from Wollongong. Zanetti got his start in The Sun, sending in cartoons, where he was noted to be the youngest political cartoonist in the country. Zanetti would go on to befriend fellow right wing cartoonist Larry Pickering, whom he would replace in a staff position for the Sunday & Daily Telegraph.

Zanetti has been convenient the re cloning of a withering cancer riddled Pickering as a Tory propagandist. His cartoons are cheap, sensationalist and intentionally offensive and distasteful. Zanetti also operates his own online political blog called Zanetti’s View which articulates a fear/ hatred of Muslims, support for Pauline Hanson and below the belt hatchet jobs targeting liberal politicians.

In early February 2017 Zanetti attended an event at North Ryde RSL fundraising for several anti Halal campaigners being taken to court for defamation. The fundraiser was organised by the far right anti Islam organisation Q Society, in which those being sued were prominent members of, namely Kirralie Smith. Zanetti was praised by speaker Ross Cameron as a guest of honour.
