The New York Times on Monday announced that it would no longer publish political cartoons in its international edition, a move that comes more than a month after the publication faced widespread condemnation for posting an anti-Semitic cartoon.

James Bennet, The Times’ editorial page editor, said in a statement that the newspaper would officially stop publishing editorial cartoons on July 1 after more than year of deliberation.

The article goes on to state the following:

Bennet issued the statement just hours after cartoonist Patrick Chappatte revealed The Times’ plans in a blog post. Chappatte, an editorial cartoonist for The Times’ international edition, linked the decision to the “widespread outrage” that followed after the paper published an anti-Semitic illustration of Israeli Prime MinisterBenjamin Netanyahu and President Trump.

In his statement, Bennet said, “We plan to continue investing in forms of Opinion journalism, including visual journalism, that express nuance, complexity and strong voice from a diversity of viewpoints across all of our platforms.”
