The New York Times said Sunday that an anti-Semitic cartoon which appeared in its international edition this past Thursday was the work of a single editor who was working “without adequate oversight”.
“We have investigated how this happened and learned that, because of a faulty process, a single editor working without adequate oversight downloaded the syndicated cartoon and made the decision to include it on the Opinion page. The matter remains under review, and we are evaluating our internal processes and training. We anticipate significant changes.”
The statement included an apology for the cartoon, which the paper acknowledged was anti-Semitic and “unacceptable”.
“We apologize for the anti-Semitic cartoon we published. Here’s our statement: We are deeply sorry for the publication of an anti-Semitic political cartoon last Thursday in the print edition of The New York Times that circulates outside of the United States, and we are committed to making sure nothing like this happens again.
