Last ‘Moderate’ At NYT’s Get’s Pushed Out, Drops A Tactical Nuke On Papers Credibility Before Leaving
New York Times opinion editor has announced that she is leaving the paper amidst an internal civil war but before she left she dropped a tactical nuke on the paper’s credibility.
Weiss posted her resignation letter for all to see and it hammers the New York Times over, “unlawful discrimination, hostile work environment, and constructive discharge” on her website.
If that doesn’t sound like a lawsuit I don’t know what does.
“My own forays into Wrongthink have made me the subject of constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views,” Weiss wrote in the letter. “They have called me a Nazi and a racist; I have learned to brush off comments about how I’m ‘writing about the Jews again.’ Several colleagues perceived to be friendly with me were badgered by coworkers.”
“My work and my character are openly demeaned on company-wide Slack channels where masthead editors regularly weigh in. There, some coworkers insist I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly ‘inclusive’ one, while others post ax emojis next to my name. Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action. They never are.”
Weiss addressed her letter to NYT publisher A.G. Sulzberger and called out the paper for dumbing down articles to feed their rabid leftist extremist.
“But the truth is that intellectual curiosity—let alone risk-taking—is now a liability at The Times,” Weiss wrote. “Why edit something challenging to our readers, or write something bold only to go through the numbing process of making it ideologically kosher, when we can assure ourselves of job security (and clicks) by publishing our 4000th op-ed arguing that Donald Trump is a unique danger to the country and the world? And so self-censorship has become the norm.”
Weiss brought up Tom Cotton’s op-ed saying it “took the paper two days and two jobs to say that the Tom Cotton op-ed “fell short of our standards.” Then called out the paper for not appending “Cheryl Strayed’s fawning interview with the writer Alice Walker, a proud anti-Semite who believes in lizard Illuminati.”
So I thought she was making a joke about the lizard Illuminati, she wasn’t click here.
She then said the “woke” millennials working at the paper are living in a distant galaxy (maybe with the lizard people).
“The paper of record is, more and more, the record of those living in a distant galaxy, one whose concerns are profoundly removed from the lives of most people,” according to Weiss. “This is a galaxy in which, to choose just a few recent examples, the Soviet space program is lauded for its ‘diversity’; the doxxing of teenagers in the name of justice is condoned; and the worst caste systems in human history includes the United States alongside Nazi Germany.”
