On radio Tuesday, Glenn read part of resignation letter from staff editor and opinions writer Bari Weiss and this is a must read. Among other things, it confirms what conservatives have known for a while, the New York times has moved beyond journalism.
Here is the section Glenn read:
"Twitter is not on the masthead of The New York Times. But Twitter has become its ultimate editor. As the ethics and mores of that platform have become those of the paper, the paper itself has increasingly become a kind of performance space. Stories are chosen and told in a way to satisfy the narrowest of audiences, rather than to allow a curious public to read about the world and then draw their own conclusions. I was always taught that journalists were charged with writing the first rough draft of history. Now, history itself is one more ephemeral thing molded to fit the needs of a predetermined narrative."
