Death of the Gray Lady

Well as many know, Bari Weiss and central-left leaning journalist resigned from the NY Times in a scathing, scorching indictment of the ‘paper of record’.
Read her letter here:

It exposes what most people already know, but seemingly fail to understand the magnitude of the damage the new intersectional religion has done in media.
Unsurprisingly, the media barely mentioned it, but its a big deal because she was a big deal.

One particular paragraph was striking to me:
"My own forays into Wrongthink have made me the subject of constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views. 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.

There are terms for all of this: unlawful discrimination, hostile work environment, and constructive discharge. I’m no legal expert. But I know that this is wrong. "

That says it all.
