Miami Herald apologizes for anti-Semitic insert that compared 'Black Lives Matter' to Nazis

Source: The Hill

Editors of the sister paper of the Miami Herald apologized this week after the publication ran an insert that included a column comparing supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement to Nazis. The column also included anti-Semitic material, at one point asking "what kind of people are these Jews?" and mocking Jewish people for "always talking about the Holocaust."

The paper is investigating how the "LIBRE" insert in the Nuevo Herald, a Spanish-language publication owned by the Miami Herald Company, ended up being run. Management of the paper also said they would never run LIBRE again.

"We are deeply sorry that inflammatory, racist and anti-Semitic commentary reached our el Nuevo Herald subscribers through LIBRE, a Spanish-language publication that paid our company to have the product printed and inserted into our print edition as a weekly supplement," Aminda Marqués González, the Herald and el Nuevo Herald's executive editor and publisher, and el Nuevo Herald managing editor Nancy San Martín wrote in a letter to readers.

"The fact that no one in leadership, beginning with us, had previously read this advertising insert until this issue was surfaced by a reader is distressing. It is one of a series of internal failures that we are investigating in order to prevent this from ever recurring," the two wrote. The column by Roberto Luque Escalona included offense remarks about Jewish people and argued that the Black Lives Matter movement, like Nazis, "only destroyed."

The letter said no one in the paper's leadership had read the insert before it was run.
The insert met with a furious blowback from Herald readers, some of whom questioned how it was possible it got through editorial controls.

1. I wonder how many racist

anti-semantic remarks managed to slip by the editors of German media 1933 on. They weren't looking because these editors are probably pushing trump anyway

2. Marxist one day. Nazis the next

But who's counting. History is not their strong suit.

Why not just keep it simple and refer to them as the boogieman.

4. They can always pull out the old Nazis-were-socialists-and-therefore-leftists canard.

I wouldn't be surprise if back issues of Libre went there.

3. Back issues were apparently just as bad

They did a review of all the back inserts.

5. "Goodness, how could this possibly have happened?" asked the editor,

as he quite deliberately ordered the insert to be included in the next edition.
