Guardian Editor Shocked By Cartoon, Promises Change, Won’t Happen Again

Guardian editor Kath Viner emails staff…

“I was working in the US when this happened, and as soon as I saw the cartoon on Saturday morning I decided with senior editors that we should remove it from our website and publish an apology. I know many colleagues were as shocked and upset as I was by the cartoon — there is no place for this type of image in the Guardian. The publication of this cartoon highlights failures in our editorial processes which we are determined to address. I am working with some of the senior editorial team on what those changes might be so that we can be sure that something like this won’t happen again.”
