The New York Times to discipline editor over anti-Semitic cartoon

Following wide condemnation of an anti-Semitic cartoon on the NYT op-ed page, the paper’s publisher A.G, Sulzberger ordered the editor to be disciplined, cancelled the contract with the syndicate that provided the cartoon and decided to update bias training for staff with the focus on anti-Semitism. The cartoon portrayed President Trump as a blind man wearing a skullcap being led by PM Netanyahu who was drawn as a dog with a Star of David hanging from his collar. Sulzberger described the cartoon as offensive. The editor who decided to run it was not named.

    That cartoon wasn’t the only blatant example of anti-Semitism. The one that followed of Prime Minister Netanyahu taking a selfie was just as disgusting and bigoted. The editor responsible for that decision to publish those cartoons should be fired, as well as publicly named and publicly shamed. When it comes to propagating anti-Semitism, the “Grey Lady” is no lady; she is a wh0re!

      I concur with Mike above, and will go further than he has.

      The ownership of the NYT, the Sulzberger family, since the 1930’s, are nothing less than KAPOS in my eyes. Based off their reporting and lack of balance, fairness, in every story, they always give moral equivalence to the “oppressed” terrorists, who shoots at buses of school children or US servicemen, when there is none. Coverage, or lack thereof of German atrocities from WWII onward, it doesn’t take a genius to see.

      If I need antisemitism, we can always watch bbc
