Apparently hate sells newspapers at UC Berkeley.
The independent student newspaper had to be told to remove an editorial cartoon from its website that critics including UC Berkeley’s chancellor called anti-semitic.
The depiction of attorney Alan Dershowitz that gave him distorted features and showed him stamping on a Palestinian person, “should not have been published, and we sincerely apologize that it was,” Daily Californian editor-in-chief Karim Doumar wrote in a blog entry posted on the paper’s website on Friday.
The cartoon, which appeared in the paper on Oct. 13, “hearkened to clearly anti-Semitic tropes,” Doumar wrote. Because of that, it has been taken off the website.
