Shmuley Boteach, "The New York Times Censors Anti-ISIS Ad": Times Readers Mustn't See the Knife Used to Kill Foley

As reported in a Breitbart article entitled "The New York Times Censors Anti-ISIS Ad" by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, The New York Times refused to run an advertisement if it showed the knife used by the ISIS murderer to decapitate James Foley. Rabbi Boteach writes:

"Our organization, This World: The Values Network, was forced to remove the photograph and replace it with one without a knife in order to have the ad appear this Tuesday in The New York Times."

Apparently, sensitive Times readers must not be allowed to be visually reminded of the manner in which Foley was executed.

Rabbi Boteach goes on to say:

"Yet, the NYT's response was a lot better than The Los Angeles Times which demanded the removal of a second image that depicted Hamas terrorists standing alongside hooded alleged collaborators which they were about to execute."

On the other hand, on April 18, 2012 The Los Angeles Times published photos of American soldiers posing with the remains of Afghan suicide bombers.

Excuse me, but I think an explanation from the editors of The Los Angeles Times is certainly in order.
