With the eruption of World War I in 1914, Robinson's increasingly radical anti-militarist political views brought him into conflict with his employer (then the NY Tribune) and he quit the publication. In 1915, he travelled to Eastern Europe on behalf of Metropolitan Magazine along with journalist and Croton notable John Reed. Robinson would later provide political cartoons for The Masses. Following The Masses, Robinson became a contributing editor to The Liberator and The New Masses, working with former Masses editor Max Eastman.
