We are in a world where moralistic mobs gather on social media and rise like a storm. Patrick Chapatte
The New York Times announced that it would no longer publish daily political cartoons in its international edition and ended its relationship with two contract cartoonists – Patrick Chappatte und Heng Kim Song.
Two months earlier, The Times had stopped running syndicated political cartoons, after one with anti-Semitic imagery was printed in the Opinion section of the international edition.
Last year, for the first time in its history, The Times had won a Pulitzer Prize for political cartooning—a series that told the story of a Syrian refugee family.
