The New York Times will take “disciplinary steps” against an editor who was responsible for publishing an anti-Semitic cartoon the newspaper’s international edition, The Wrap is reporting.

The action was announced on Wednesday in a memo to the newspaper’s staff members by publisher A.G. Sulzberger.

“We are taking disciplinary steps with the production editor who selected the cartoon for publication,” Sulzberger’s memo read, according to The Wrap.

The memo also noted the Times would be “updating our unconscious bias training to ensure it includes a direct focus on anti-Semitism.”

“This episode is a reminder that all of us are custodians of our trust and credibility with readers,” Sulzberger said. “Our journalists work hard every day to help people understand a vast and diverse world and ensure prejudices of any kind do not make it into our report.”

The cartoon depicted Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a dachshund waring a Star of David collar and leading a blind and skullcap-wearing President Donald Trump.

In a Sunday tweet, the Times apologized for the cartoon and said that “we are committed to making sure nothing like this happens again.”

Meanwhile, a second cartoon depicting Netanyahu as a blind Moses-like figure holding a tablet with the Israeli flag on it instead of the Ten Commandments, was also recently published in the newspaper's international edition, Fox News is reporting. That cartoon has also been widely criticized.
