NYT says ‘error of judgment’ caused it to print anti-Semitic cartoon depicting Trump, Netanyahu

[Ed. – The cartoon (below) really is flagrantly anti-Semitic.  No concerned readers have been able to detect any trace of apology in the paper’s “error of judgment” acknowledgment.  That this astonishing cartoon was printed by a supposedly mainstream outlet — indeed, America’s leading print publication — within a few hours of the synagogue shooting in California is … food for thought.]

The New York Times announced Saturday it was deleting an anti-Semitic cartoon from its international edition featuring Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a guide dog leading a blind Donald Trump.

Netanyahu is depicted with a Star of David collar, while Trump holds his leash and is depicted as blind by wearing sunglasses. The Times said in a statement from its opinion page’s Twitter account that it was an “error of judgment to publish it” and admitted it “included anti-Semitic tropes.”
