Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
In this episode, the guys keep it simple, discussing Bari Weiss’s departure from the New York Times. She quit and wrote a scathing open letter, detailing the reasons for her resignation. Also discussed is Andrew Sullivan’s departure from New York Magazine, with both stemming from what looks like intolerance from not only readers but staff members who increasingly are hostile to points of view that do not align with their own.
It has implications for those publications but the business of journalism overall. Will the guardians of these institutions stand up and say, “That’s enough!” or will they allow a bunch of Jacobins to control the editorial content?
