New Yorker not to change content for iPad rules

Apple bans political-cartoon apps that mock public figures, and also racy photographs in fashion mag

David Remnick, editor-in-chief of the New Yorker, has said the magazine will not change its content to meet Apple's iPad censorship rules.

The New Yorker recently sparked off a controversy when it carried a cover image that depicted Barack Obama as a flag-burning Muslim. The magazine was reportedly trying to ridicule right-wing stereotypes of the US president.

During a breakfast discussion at the office of New Yorker's publisher Condé Nast, Remnick said the magazine will publish what it wants to.Whether it is a serious, funny or provocative piece on the cover or inside, New Yorker will not bow to pressure from Apple, he added.
