Murdoch apologized Tuesday.

"Today I want to personally apologize to any reader who felt offended, and even insulted," according to the statement from Murdoch, who is also chairman and CEO of News Corporation, which owns the paper.

"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."

Leaders of the NAACP on Saturday called for the firing of Delonas.

Delonas called the controversy "absolutely friggin' ridiculous."

Apologizing to these whack jobs is OFFENSIVE.

@hawkeye10,
Does anyone know if Obama has made any response to the cartoon?
(I looked - but couldn't find anything specifically attributed to him).

*David - thanks for your encouragement a few pages back.

I already agreed with that. I thought the cartoon crude and insensitive,
and I didn't appreciate it, but not because it was racist as I do not believe it was racist in any way.

With all respect,
I gotta wonder: R we charged with being SENSITIVE ?

How did that happen ?

Did we take a vote ?

Not that I know of - I was sort of joking about being 'forbidden' to piggyback or quote someone.

But I'm really curious - has Obama said anything at all about the cartoon?
Do you know?

Okay, I promise.

I think his take on the matter would be the most pertinent of all, certainly.

@aidan,
This is bullshit, of course. I can't and didn't forbid you to do anything. I objected, and i will always object to someone using my post as a basis for responding to what someone else has said. I do not and never have objected to being quoted, saving only that i will reject comments on my quoted posts which entail things such as straw man arguments.

This post of yours is a perfect example--it is a straw man. One, because i did not attempt to and cannot forbid you to do anything; and two, because i did not object to and do not object to being quoted.

OK; I will laff.


I think it is MORE pertinent what the AUTHOR of the cartoon has to say about it.
