NYTimes Apologizes for Silence During the Holocaust and Antisemitic Cartoon
In the 1930s and the 1940s, The Times was largely silent as anti-Semitism rose up and bathed the world in blood. That failure still haunts this newspaper. Now, rightly, The Times has declared itself “deeply sorry” for the cartoon and called it “unacceptable.” Apologies are important, but the deeper obligation of The Times is to focus on leading through unblinking journalism and the clear editorial expression of its values.
The New York Times Editorial Board is responsible for writing The Times’s editorials, “which represent the voice of the board, its editor and the publisher.“
