Al Sharpton’s cartoon jihad against the New York Post has other newsrooms trembling.
Check out this preemptive apology from the Washington Post printed in yesterday’s paper:
“The headline, illustration and text of “Below the Beltway,” a column in The Washington Post Magazine today, may cause offense to readers. The magazine was printed before a widely publicized incident last week in which a chimpanzee attacked and badly mauled a woman in Stamford, Conn. In addition, the image and text inadvertently may conjure racial stereotypes that The Post does not countenance. We regret the lapse.”
