Murdock Apologizes

Hat Tip to the website/blog All About Race.com for the link regarding the most recent New York Post apology today:

Rupert Murdoch

As the Chairman of the New York Post, I am ultimately responsible for what is printed in its pages. The buck stops with me.

Last week, we made a mistake. We ran a cartoon that offended many people. Today I want to personally apologize to any reader who felt offended, and even insulted.

Over the past couple of days, I have spoken to a number of people and I now better understand the hurt this cartoon has caused. At the same time, I have had conversations with Post editors about the situation and I can assure you - without a doubt - that the only intent of that cartoon was to mock a badly written piece of legislation. It was not meant to be racist, but unfortunately, it was interpreted by many as such.

We all hold the readers of the New York Post in high regard and I promise you that we will seek to be more attuned to the sensitivities of our community. Source

AAPP says: This Pundit is not buying this
apology. It's what some would call, "The Murdoch Non-Apology." The fact is, this newspapers management, owners and this cartoonist have a history of color aroused bigotry. It's too bad the NY Post and other journalist just don't get it.
