THE SILENCE OF THE NEW YORK TIMES IS JUST AS UNETHICAL AS THEIR ANTI-SEMITIC EDITOR

LAURIE CARDOZA-MOORE: “AS WE MARK YOM HASHOAH – THE NEW YORK TIMES CONTINUES TO EMPLOY AN ANTI-SEMITIC ‘UNETHICAL’ EDITOR THAT APPROVED THE ‘DER STÜRMER’ STYLE CARTOONS”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE (5/2/2019) Laurie Cardoza-Moore, evangelical media veteran and show host of the award-winning television program Focus On Israel, condemned the New York Times for its blatant anti-Semitic cartoons. She is now calling on her media colleagues and all people of conscience to keep up the pressure and demand that the paper fire the editor responsible for the Nazi like propaganda.

One of the cartoons published depicted President Trump as a blind man sporting a black Yarmulke being led by a dog with the face of Prime Minister Netanyahu wearing a Star of David dog collar. The second shows Netanyahu dressed as Moses holding up a blank stone tablet with the Israeli flag on it. The New York Times has claimed to have fired the syndicate that provided them, but has yet to identify or reprimand the editor who approved the publication of the offensive cartoons.

“Is this the 1930s?  As we mark Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) – the New York Times continues to employ this unethical, anti-Semitic editor that approved two ‘Der Stürmer’ style cartoons. The silence of the leadership of the New York Times is deafening!  As an award-winning media veteran of 32 years, and a member of the President’s Council of the National Religious Broadcasters Convention, it is unfathomable that an editor could accidentally publish such a cartoon, unaware of its toxic message,” stated Cardoza-Moore. 

Ms. Cardoza-Moore continued that, “according to the original Code of Ethics in Media created by the Hutchins Commission and The Society of Professional Journalists and adopted in 1996, it is my duty as a media professional to ‘expose unethical practices of journalists and the news media.’” (Straubhaar, LaRose & Davenport, Pg 479). 

The code is used to hold journalists liable when their actions are unprofessional.  The Times editor abused his position and all professional decorum. The guidelines further state that people that have high media attention should not abuse their power.  Another part of the code states that "society's welfare is paramount, more important than individual careers or even individual rights." (Straubhaar, LaRose & Davenport, Pg 477)

“Again, people must be held responsible for actions that can violently impact others.  With the rise of anti-Semitism around the globe and the U.S., the New York Times by proxy is helping to incite anti-Semitic attacks. Furthermore, it came from a cartoonist with a long history of contemptible Jew hatred. We cannot stand quietly as one of America’s most respected newspapers descends to the depth of Nazi-style propaganda,” declared Laurie Cardoza-Moore.

Cardoza-Moore continued: “Much has been said about the cartoon that depicted Netanyahu as a dog; however, it must be noted that hours later they published a cartoon that suggested the Bible was empty and that Israel had invented her own history. We the people cannot allow the radical left to erode our public discourse by white washing and normalizing anti-Semitism. A picture speaks a thousand words and all of the apologies on earth will not delete that horrific cartoon from the minds of millions of readers around the globe. What message is the New York Times sending?”

Proclaiming Justice to The Nations (PJTN), a 501c3 non-profit organization, was established to educate Christians about their Biblical responsibility to stand with their Jewish brethren and Israel against the rise of global anti-Semitism. Utilizing powerful film and video presentations, a variety of grassroots rallies, events and speaking engagements to facilitate dialogue between the Christian and Jewish communities in support of the State of Israel and against global genocidal anti-Semitism. In recent months, the organization has led the struggle against BDS in America with a wave of state resolutions and has exposed textbooks used in U.S. schools that are indoctrinating our children with inaccurate historical information, bias and values that do not reflect our nation. Laurie Cardoza-Moore, President of Proclaiming Justice to The Nations is the show host of the award-winning evangelical television program Focus On Israel that reaches a weekly global audience of over 2 billion viewers in 200 nations through our 20 global media partners.
