Bari Weiss quits the New York Times

How long before she's writing for The Federalist?



https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/4ay47q/bari-weiss-is-leaving-the-new-york-times

Bari Weiss, a writer and editor for the embattled New York Times Opinion section, has resigned from the paper.

When reached by phone, Weiss did not want to offer any further comment beyond confirming that she was out. According to an internal source, she was removed from the staff directory sometime in the past week.

A controversial figure inside and outside the paper, Weiss leaves in the wake of what she recently described as a civil war at the Times between (mostly young) wokes and (mostly 40+) liberals. That war reached its apex when Opinion head James Bennet, who had been widely tipped as a potential replacement for top Times editor Dean Baquet, left the paper after publishing an op-ed in which Senator Tom Cotton called for the use of military force against protestors.

3. Better to be an Anti-Trump Conservative than an anti-left leftist.

Weiss is one along with Joe Rogan, Bill Maher, Steven Pinker, etc...

6. No big loss.

Now hopefully Bill Maher will stop asking her to be on the show. I've never liked her.
