The New York Times’ public editor called a graphic about the Iran nuclear deal that singled out Jewish lawmakers “insensitive and inappropriate.”

Margret Sullivan addressed the issue Friday in her column a day after the graphic titled “Lawmakers against the Iran deal” was posted online and published in the newspaper.

The chart originally included a column with the heading “Jewish?” “Yeses” were highlighted in yellow, while “noes” were not.
