Why Did the NY Times Force One Writer Apologize to Sarah Jeong?

The hiring of Sarah Jeong by the New York Times editorial board did not sit well with one of the NYT’s own writers. Elizabeth Williamson of the NYT let it be known that she did not approve all the racial tweets that are in Jeong’s past. You could actually consider the tweets by Ms. Jeong to be hate-fullied and probably in violation of many social network community standards. There has been no sign that Twitter or other networks were taking action against her because of it. Because she is a minority, racism cannot be ascribed to her. Ms. Williamson did not say who told her to apologize. Can you guess?

Jeong became the subject of national controversy last week after dozens of anti-white tweets resurfaced, and the Times defended her despite her non-apology.

It’s unclear whether the Times pressured Williamson to apologize, or whether she caved to the baying of the Twitter outrage mob. In any case, the irony of an apology…..
