The NY Times stops publish syndicated cartoons
The New York Times International Edition will no longer publish syndicated editorial cartoons, a Times spokesperson said Tuesday, after the Opinion section of that edition last week printed two syndicated cartoons that elicited charges of anti-Semitism, as The New York Times informed. The cartoons were published days apart, one on Thursday and one in the weekend edition. “The cartoon that ran in the international print edition of The Times last Thursday was clearly anti-Semitic and indefensible and we apologize for its publication,” the spokesperson said. The spokesperson said of the second cartoon, “While we don’t think this cartoon falls into that category, for now, we’ve decided to suspend the future publication of syndicated cartoons.” The Times’s international print edition circulates outside the United States. It once ran a mixture of syndicated and original cartoons. But under the change, it will become like the United States edition of The Times, which runs only original cartoons. The New York Times
