The New York Times apology for anti-Semitic cartoon

The New York times publishes controversial cartoon, again

Despite wide-spread condemnation after an anti-Semitic cartoon was published Thursday in the international edition, a second cartoon raises questions.

Before the dust had a chance to settle over the reactions to an anti-Semitic cartoon published last week depicting a blind Trump led by a dog with Netanyahu's face, causing outrage and criticism, another controversial cartoon was published by the paper.



New York Times spokeswoman Eileen Murphy, said of the cartoon published in the international edition: “The image was offensive, and it was an error of judgment to publish it” She added the paper was “deeply sorry” for publishing the cartoon.

The paper, in the editor's note said: “Such imagery is always dangerous, and at a time when anti-Semitism is on the rise worldwide, it’s all the more unacceptable".


In response, the American Jewish Committee replied: “Apology not accepted".


"What does this say about your processes or your decision makers? How are you fixing it?” they ask.


But Sunday saw another cartoon, this time Netanyahu is dressed as Moses holding a stone tablet taking a selfie, once again raising doubts about the paper's judgement
