Goggle News Hits on antisemitic Tony Auth cartoon: only 5

Editor & Publisher Online has picked up the story of Tony Auth's antisemitic cartoon showing a Magen David - shaped fence penning in Palestinian men, women and children, though without the added dimension of the Nazi propaganda poster which it so disturbingly resembles.

You can encourage E&P to go further on this story by writing to the article's author and senior editor, Dave Astor: dastor@editorandpublisher.com

For email addresses of other media outlets, see HonestReporting's Contact the Media page. If we don't complain about the cartoon, and the subsequent lack of media coverage of its resemblance to Nazi propaganda, we will only be faced with more and worse as time goes on.
