Readers of the Chicago Tribune are complaining about an editorial cartoon they see as anti-Semitic. The cartoon, which appeared last Friday, depicts President Bush laying down dollar bills in front of a heavyset man with large nose and Star of David on his jacket. The man, who is meant to be Ariel Sharon, says, “On second thought, the pathway to peace is looking a bit brighter.” The Tribune’s ombudsman, Don Wycliff, said he agrees that the cartoon reinforces anti-Semitic stereotypes.
