Admin (Anthony Gockowki), The Star News Network
Despite acknowledging that the cartoon was “intended to support the recent decision by the
Minneapolis City Council,” Grove apologized because “the cartoon didn’t achieve its goal but instead brought pain to readers and communities who felt targeted and mischaracterized.” “I’m sorry that the Star Tribune published it. We will work harder to do better as an organization to ensure we’re holding ourselves and our community accountable in constructive ways that speak to our values of respect and integrity”.
