NYT Disciplines Editor After Publishing Cartoon Depicting Anti-Semitic Tropes

The New York Times is disciplining the editor who chose to publish an anti-Semitic cartoon in Thursday’s international print edition, the paper reported Wednesday.

The paper reported that it will also overhaul its bias training to have an emphasis on anti-Semitism, according to an internal note from the Times’s publisher, A. G. Sulzberger. According to the Times, it also will no longer run syndicated cartoons created by artists who do are not tied to the paper directly.

Sulzberger said the “offensive” cartoon was “downloaded and published by a single production editor working without adequate oversight.”

“Though I’ve been assured there was no malice involved in this mistake, we fell far short of our standards and values in this case,” he added.

  1. attention NYT: the fact is that you have no standards or values, not anymore. you have repeatedly shown your attitude in the many antisemitic articles you have published long before this cartoon appeared. i suppose you have finally noticed the falling numbers of subscribers so you got in your last licks and you want us to thank you for that meaningless apology. it wont happen

  2. “…we fell far short of our standards and values in this case.”
    What are their standards and values?
