Picks, Dec. 6: “Screen Time”
Gun safety, even in art
I was really enjoying the edition of Dec. 6-12, 2023 until I turned to page 15 to see (rather, my eyes were assaulted by) a man with a gun pointed straight out of the frame at me. I ducked. Then realized that it was really just a horribly poor editorial choice to print that promo photo for “Coyo.” Come on! Seriously? Not only offensive and frightening, but actually REALLY bad gun safety. The Reporter can do better!

Thanks for inserting this picture of a gun pointed at me into my news feed. I’m sure you had compelling editorial conversations about it.

Tom Tomorrow, Dec. 6:
This cartoon is anti-Semitic. It depicts Kissinger joining Nixon in Hell and identifies Kissinger as Jewish. His religion should be irrelevant to his
misdeeds in life. Why bring it up, unless that’s the actual point? The devil himself then recognizes Kissinger’s “special talents” and makes him his right-hand man. Kissinger even grows horns. This plays into the anti-Semitic trope that Jews are the hidden masterminds behind evil in the world, and the ancient hateful myth that Jews have horns like the devil. None of this is funny. This was published on the eve of Chanukah and at a time when anti-Semitism and Islamophobia are on the rise worldwide. You owe your readers an apology.
