Biased left-wing CNN legal analyst beats off on Zoom presidential exercise
The New Yorker said on Monday that it had suspended the staff writer Jeffrey Toobin after he exposed himself during a Zoom call last week with employees of the magazine and WNYC radio, according to two people familiar with the call.
Staff writers at The New Yorker and employees from WNYC, which jointly produce the magazine’s podcast, were on a joint video call prepping for election night coverage, according to Vice, which first reported the episode. During a pause in the call for breakout discussions, Mr. Toobin switched to a second call that was the video-call equivalent of phone sex, according to the two people familiar with the call, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Erick Woods Erickson says, “I am surprised Jeffrey Toobin has not blamed Russian interference on the erection.”
“For more than a decade, Jeffrey Toobin has been a partisan progressive who has used his perch as CNN’s supposedly objective legal analyst to assail critics, conservatives, and anyone he disagrees with. … Toobin has exposed himself (pun intended) as a not very original thinker with a nasty streak. …
“The bigger issue though is this one — a decade ago, Toobin had an affair with the daughter of a colleague. He got her pregnant, pressured her to have an abortion, refused a DNA test when she refused, and then tried to fight paying child support.
“The media was perfectly fine employing the guy.”
NFL dopes duped again
