Opin­ion edi­tor at N.Y. Times quits

Chicago Sun-Times - - NATION / WORLD -

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.

An­drew Sul­li­van, another prom­i­nent jour­nal­ist who ex­pressed con­cern that a “woke” cul­ture is crowd­ing out dis­sent­ing opin­ion, sim­i­larly an­nounced his res­ig­na­tion from New York magazine.

Sul­li­van is a con­ser­va­tive columnist and Weiss is con­sid­ered con­ser­va­tive by some, al­though she la­bels her­self a cen­trist.

“In­tel­lec­tual cu­rios­ity is now a li­a­bil­ity at The Times,” said Weiss, who was also a writer at the news­pa­per.
