“Jonathan Weisman, the deputy Washington editor for The New York Times (NYT), has been demoted after a pair of incidents in which he ignited controversy on Twitter (TWTR), the newspaper said Tuesday.

“Jonathan Weisman met with [Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet] today and apologized for his recent serious lapses in judgment. As a consequence of his actions, he has been demoted and will no longer be overseeing the team that covers Congress or be active on social media. We don’t typically discuss personnel matters but we’re doing so in this instance with Jonathan’s knowledge,” a Times spokesperson said in a statement.

Over the last few weeks, Weisman had faced a barrage of criticism for his behavior on social media.”*

  1. So the guy was told by the chief to turn in his gun, was taken off the street, put on fully-paid administrative duties and ordered not to make public statements pending the results of an internal investigation? Where have I heard this kind of story before? Hmmmm…………

  2. Dear young Turks. What is the story with Epstein?
    “Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.”
    Arthur Conan Doyle
    Unidentified individual clams Epstein’s body. Did Barr clam Epstein’s body?
    This should be public records. We the people pay for the work of the coroners office. What is going on here? I won’t to see a copy of the coroner’s report, and who picked up the body! 🤔
    Exactly what bones 🦴 were broken in Epstein’s neck, and in what location were they broken? Was their any other signs of injuries that would indicate if Epstein was murdered, or killed himself? How can his body be released before drugs screening results have been clearly assessed? One would think it would be necessary to get a court order before his body could be released! 😳🤔 Please!!!!!!! 😲
    Ware is the copy of the court order to have Epstein’s body released?
    I have to add one more slap 👋 question. Did the one prison guard, and the pretend prison guard falsify the log record, before or after Epstein’s alleged death? It is my understanding from a family member that the logs are taken control of immediately after a critical incident by the Warden of the facility. This is to prevent the falsifying of the log! 🤔Actually their are several log’s including , but not limited to egress logs.
    The question must now be asked did the warden, or deputy warden falsify the logs, or were they all conspiring to cover up the critical incident after they all took a nap while Epstein went to see the other side!
    “Fight the powers, Fight the powers that be!” ❤️🤗🖖
    Now, let’s touch upon a subject that know one wants to. Epstein as a asset of a foreign government. It would be worth millions of dollars 💵 to have a asset that could implicate world leaders in abusing adolescent girls, and boys. This type of information would be worth billion’s of dollars 💵 in aid, and political leverage to the owner of the asset! If you don’t believe this is plausible, you are being naive! Apparently money came to Epstein from heaven????
    It is vary clear what had to be done with Epstein after a prosecutor finally decided to do their job!
    1. You remove the asset to a safe location! 2. You eliminate the asset!
    Witch ever one has taken place, the result is the same for the owners of the asset! 😢
    “Fight the powers, Fight the powers that be!” ❤️🤗🖖

  3. The ship sailed on the NYT a long time ago. Yes, they have good reporting but it is hit or miss. Their Trump 2016 election coverage has been almost as terrible as their reporting selling the Iraq war to the American public alongside the Bush administration. Weissman is not the first problematic, partisan reporter on their staff nor their last. The fact that they keep him on staff in a less public role is very telling as to their commitment to values and "the truth".

  4. Dollars to Bagels w/ lox this editor is attacking progressive is simply due to the fact that the status quo Dems blindly support rightwing policies in Israel while Talib & others are vocal critics of the apartheid state which is Israel.
