“The New York Times deleted a political cartoon over the weekend after acknowledging that it contained ‘anti-Semitic tropes,’ an episode decried as the latest example of rising anti-Semitism on the left,” The Washington Times editorial board writes. “The New York Times editor’s note was described by some as an apology, although the message did not actually apologize for running the cartoon.” In a statement, the American Jewish Committee said it would not accept the non-apology. “How many @nytimes editors looked at a cartoon that would not have looked out of place on a white supremacist website and thought it met the paper’s editorial standards?”

Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Sean Duffy (R-WI), Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Duncan Hunter (R-CA), and John Joyce (R-PA) in Fox News.

Billions of dollars of new investment have poured into these industries.”
