NY Times Trashes Cartoonists | Daryl Cagle

The New York Times is to cease publishing political cartoons from its international edition after previously publishing an antisemitic cartoon to international backlash.

By choosing not to print editorial cartoons in the future, the Times can be sure that their editors will never again make a poor cartoon choice. Editors at the Times have also made poor choices of words in the past. I would suggest that the Times should also choose not to print words in the future –just to be on the safe side. –Daryl Cagle
