NY Times Editor: We won't tow cows

From yesterdays Collegian, in an article about the speech the New York Times Metropolitan editor gave, we get this transcribed quote:

“I try to listen more closely to readers’ complaints,” she said. “It’s not about weakness, cow-towing or pacifying someone. It’s about getting it right.”
Cow-towing? Is this the metropolitan equivalent of cow-tipping? And why would you do it to a person, anyways… isn't that kinda barbaric?

Yeah, I’m gonna take a stab in the dark here, and venture that the NY Times editor might actually have said “kowtowing.” A small error, to go from kowtowing to cow-towing, but one that is laughably obvious and imparts a ridiculous meaning to what the NY Time Metro editor may or may not have said.
