Washington (AP) A New Yorker magazine cover cartoon depicting Barack Obama dressed as a Muslim and his wife as a terrorist is drawing criticism.
Obama's campaign calls it “tasteless and offensive.”
The magazine says the drawing is a satirical lampoon of the caricature Obama's critics have tried to create.
But an Obama campaign spokesman says he doesn't think most Americans will see it that way.
It isn't just the Obama campaign that's critical. A spokesman for John McCain's campaign agreed that the cover was “tasteless and offensive.”
New Yorker editor David remnick told the New York Daily News that he was surprised by the reaction.
