Times editor resigns, saying she was harassed for her ideas
NEW YORK Bari Weiss, an opinion editor at The New York Times, quit her job on Tuesday with a public resignation letter that alleged harassment and a hostile work environment created by people who disagreed with her. Intellectual curiosity is now a liability at The Times, said Weiss, who was also a writer at the newspaper. Showing up to work as a centrist at an American newspaper should not require bravery, Weiss wrote. The Times didn't address Weiss' specific harassment allegations. On Twitter, Sullivan wrote that the mob bullied Weiss for thought crimes and her editors stood by and watched."
