A big change is coming for one major newspaper outlet as it pays the price for constantly making digs at President Trump.
The New York Times has announced that they are suspending the publication of all syndicated political cartoons from its international print edition after facing severe backlash.
The paper was already taking a hit from the Jewish community after publishing a cartoon that it was forced to remove and admit was anti-Semitic. But they apparently didn’t learn the lesson and shortly after apologizing for the first cartoon published yet another anti-Semitic work.
the first image featured Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a dog with a Star of David around his collar on a leash leading a blind U.S. President Trump around as he dons a skullcap.
“A political cartoon in the international print edition of The New York Times on Thursday included anti-Semitic tropes, depicting the prime minister of Israel as a guide dog with a Star of David collar leading the president of the United States, shown wearing a skullcap,” read an editor’s note that attempted to right the wrong. “The image was offensive, and it was an error of judgment to publish it. It was provided by The New York Times News Service and Syndicate, which has since deleted it.”
However before that retraction could make it to print, a new publication had already launched showing yet another instance of unacceptable material.
This has led the entire establishment into lockdown as both executives and editors investigate how such a gaffe could occur back to back.
That declaration hasn’t stopped outraged citizens from condemning the paper and calling for action to be taken against it though.
Perhaps there simply wasn’t enough outrage for the NYT to notice the first time?
