Really? How excited is he?
The New Yorker has suspended reporter Jeffrey Toobin. Sources tell VICE it’s because he exposed himself during a Zoom call last week between members of the New Yorker and WNYC radio.
Toobin said in a statement to Motherboard: “I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers.”
“I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video,” he added.
UPDATE: In a stunning ‘correction’ from Vice, which ratchets this story up to ’11’ on the Spinal Tap amplifier of WTF-ness, “This piece has been updated with more detail about the call and the headline has been updated to reflect that Toobin was masturbating.”
Remember, these are the people who believe they are our moral and cultural superiors. Notice that CNN has only “suspended” the freakshow, when they should have fired him immediately.
