NY Times: If we can't run our anti-semitic cartoons, then we won't run any at all!

Doesn't it tell you much about that paper that they just can't seem to find anyone capable of drawing political cartoons who cannot be an anti-semite?

1. The Netenyahu cartoon wasn't by one of the regular staffers.

The two political cartoonists they had on staff are now being laid off.

Well, if you can't tell that something is anti-semitic you're probably better off shutting down the entire editorial department.

5. The Opinion Editor of the NY Times would have final say

on political cartooning.
James Douglas Bennet is an American journalist. He is the editorial page editor at The New York Times. He is the younger brother of U.S. Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO).

James Bennet was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the son of Susanne Bennet (née Klejman; of Polish Jewish descent) and Douglas J. Bennet. He has a brother and sister. When his father went to work on the staff of Senator Thomas F. Eagleton, the family moved to Washington, D.C., where James attended the St. Albans School. He studied at Yale University, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree and was editor-in-chief of The New Journal.
