A Washington political editor of the New York Times has been demoted by his newspaper after a series of comments made that incensed the media titan’s liberal readers. Jonathan Weisman had made comments critical of insurgent progressive Democrats such as Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar.
Weisman became a target for criticism on the left when he claimed the the two legislators weren’t actually from the midwestern constituencies they represent in Congress.
The longtime mainstream media journalist has an editorial stance that favors establishment Democrats against insurgent leftists seeking to exert influence within the party.
Weisman also became a target of racism accusations when he blamed Justice Democrats, a left-wing caucus, for mounting a primary challenge of a black Democrat. He completely failed to mention that the primary challenger they endorsed was also black.

Weisman went on to angrily email the Justice Democrats-endorsed candidate, arrogantly claiming that she owed him an apology after correcting his erroneous assertion that she wasn’t black.
Weisman was stripped of his editor position, which involved overseeing the New York Times’ network of contributors in Washington D.C, after a meeting with the paper’s executive editor, Dean Baquet. He’ll be allowed to stay on with the New York Times in a reduced and perhaps ceremonial position.
He was compelled to grovel for forgiveness, admitting that he had “embarrassed the newspaper” after his demotion.
In brief interview, Weisman said: “I accept Dean’s judgment. I think he’s right to do what he’s doing. I embarrassed the newspaper, and he had to act.”

If Weisman can be called a victim of “political correctness,” he’s nothing more than a casualty of his own creation. The mainstream media propagandist has written at length falsely accusing Donald Trump of encouraging neo-Nazis and puppeteering a renaissance of racial hatred throughout the United States.
The disgraced editor now faces a lengthy, if not insurmountable, climb to regain his prestigious status with the media elite.

CNN Host Admits He Was “Snookered” By Avenatti After Felony Extortion Conviction
Mainstream media outlets like CNN were instrumental in making Avenatti a political celebrity.
CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin admitted he felt “snookered” by disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti after the former political celebrity’s felony conviction for extortion on Friday night.
Toobin struck a penitent tone for his own network’s role in promoting the now-convicted felon. Avenatti was a regular on liberal mainstream media outlets such as CNN and MSNBC throughout 2018, frequently boasting of outlandish lawsuits that were set to finally take down President Trump.
In hindsight, after the “creepy porn lawyer’s” dramatic rise and fall, CNN is largely left with egg on their face for ever having taken him seriously. Toobin admitted this in the segment, showing more reflection than many of his mainstream media colleagues are inclined to undergo.
“I feel kind of snookered, because I took him seriously.”
Avenatti has been convicted for a scheme to extort tens of millions of dollars from sporting company Nike. He faces up to decades in prison in upcoming sentencing proceedings, and is currently housed in solitary in New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center. He’s also set to face even more criminal charges in California, related to accusations he stole lawsuit rewards from his legal clients.
Avenatti’s rise and fall from cable news darling and pugnacious anti-Trump “fighter” to disgraced felon facing a possible life sentence is about as dramatic an arc one could expect to see a public figure undergo.
CNN and MSNBC now face some serious sole searching for their role in promoting the fraud, having taken his boisterous claims at face value for almost a year and even implicitly promoting his ridiculous presidential admiration. At least Toobin appears willing to admit his role in feeding the CPL’s ambitions.
