REPORT: New York Times announces decision on political cartoons after antisemitism scandals

BREITBART.COM:

The international edition of the New York Times will no longer feature editorial cartoons. The move to self-censorship follows the uproar sparked by publication of a widely denounced antisemitic caricature of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The cartoon, published in April, depicted Netanyahu as a dog wearing a Star of David collar and leading a sightless U.S. President Donald Trump — who was wearing a Jewish skullcap.

The article goes on to state the following:

The offensive piece was drawn by Portuguese artist António Moreira Antunesas and published during the Passover holiday.

The report states that NY Times Editor James Bennet said that effective July 1, the paper will “cease running political cartoons in the international print version of the Times, in line with the U.S. edition.”
