A former “fact checker” for The New Yorker who was set to teach a course at New York University as an adjunct professor will not be granted that opportunity after only two students signed up for her class.
Talia Levin, who resigned in disgrace from The New Yorker after falsely accusing a disabled U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer of having a Nazi tattoo, was set to teach a class called “Reporting on the Far Right,” according to The Wrap.
“Canceling the class had nothing to do with Talia’s writings, tweets, or anything else. We cancelled it because too few students enrolled,” Adam Penenberg, director of undergraduate studies at NYU’s journalism school reportedly said.
Lavin is an ardent left-winger. She lashed out at Jon Levine, author of The Wrap’s story, on Twitter.
“It’s true: only 2 students signed up for my class. Here’s some other hot news for Jon and his editors: Once I threw a VERY elaborate theme party in college and no one came. In high school, a bunch of boys stole my journal & read my sex fantasies about my English teacher aloud,” she said.

After being canned from The New Yorker, Lavin began writing for The Washington Post.
Big League Politics reported:
Talia Lavin, the disgraced former fact checker for the New Yorker who doxed an ICE agent falsely for being a Nazi, has had her career rehabilitated by the fake news industry. The Washington Postscooped her up despite (or maybe due to) being a known liar to malign conservatives for Jeff Bezos’ lobbying rag.
Lavin was hard at work following the burning of the Notre Dame Cathedral, deriding any chatter of what caused the Paris blaze as far-right conspiracy theories. She singled out ‘Never Trumper‘ Ben Shapiro with a diatribe of nonsensical gibberish.
“Ben Shapiro called Notre Dame a ‘monument to Western civilization’ and ‘Judeo-Christian heritage.’ Given the already-raging rumors about potential Muslim involvement, these tweets evoked the specter of a war between Islam and the West that is already part of numerous far-right narratives; it was also a central thread in the manifesto of Brenton Tarrant, the alleged Christchurch, New Zealand, shooter,” Lavin wrote.

Jussie Smollett Charged By Special Prosecutor For Chicago Hate Hoax
Smollett won’t get off the hook after all.
Chicago actor Jussie Smollett was charged by a Cook County special prosecutor with six counts of disorderly conduct related to lying to the police on Tuesday. Dan Webb, a former U.S attorney appointed by Judge Michael Toomin, announced the charges as the result of a grand jury investigation.
Smollett had appeared to escape criminal repercussions for a hoax he orchestrated of January 2019, in which he paid two Nigerian brothers to play the role of Trump supporters and “attack” him in a fake racially charged event. Smollett was originally charged by prosecutors with filing a fake police report, but evaded punishment when a suspect district attorney ordered the charges dropped on the basis of Smollett’s supposed community service.
But he won’t use his ‘get out of jail free’ card after all. Webb was appointed by Judge Toomin six months ago to investigate the circumstances surrounding the suspicious dropping of Smollett’s charges. In a statement, the special prosecutor explained his decision to file new criminal charges against Smollett for his orchestration of the hoax.
““The grand jury’s investigation revealed that Jussie Smollett planned and participated in a staged hate crime attack, and thereafter made numerous false statements to Chicago Police Department officers on multiple occasions, reporting a heinous hate crime that he, in fact, knew had not occurred.”
A statement from Smollett’s lawyers in light of the new criminal charges goes to show the former Empire actor isn’t thrilled that he’s going back to court to face accountability for his dishonest publicity stunt.
Smollett is set to appear in a Cook County courthouse on February 24th.
