A month and a half after the New York Times defiantly printed an anti-semitic cartoon in its international issue the newspaper has pronounced to wipe out editorial cartoons forever. The resolution was disclosed when one of the Times’ cartoonist Patrick Chappatte published a blog post connecting the paper’s resolution to the contemporary debate.
However, James Bennet, the editorial page editor said the resolution was being inspected for quite some time now. He indicated that the version of the newspaper that most readers observe in the US does not carry cartoons.
Bennet said that they are extremely appreciative for and proud of the work Patrick Chappatte and Heng Kim Song have done for the international edition of the New York Times which transmits abroad but for over a year now they have been taking into account that edition into line with internal paper by terminating daily political cartoons and will do so commencing on July 1st.
Bennet appended that they plan to pursue investing in the conformation of Opinion journalism entailing visual journalism that indicates variation difficulty and robust voice from a mélange of perspective on all of their platforms.
That involves graphic description like comic strip like sequences ‘Welcome to the New World’ about a Syrian refugee family. The sequence obtained the Times its elemental ever Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning 2018. Bennet added that they aspire to do more such work and wish to conspire with Patrick and Heng and others on similar projects in the future.
