Opinion editor at N.Y. Times quits
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.
