Following is the text of the letter sent to the publisher of the New York Times, A.G. Sulzberger, from Bari Weiss, resigning from her column and editing duties on the paper’s opinion pages. Dear A.G., It is with sadness that I write to tell you that I am resigning from The New York Times. I joined the paper with gratitude and optimism three years ago. I was hired with the goal of bringing in voices that would not otherwise appear in your pages: first-time writers, centrists, conservatives and others who would not naturally think of The Times as their


Anyone with an independent streak is bullied by the illiberal, hateful leftists at the Slimes. Here's an open letter from a young writer/editor on why she's getting out.

I can only hope that at some point this begins to have an impact on journalism. If another Breitbart pops up, there will be a number of very capable journalists that are available for hire. Does Bari have a blog? Perhaps she can take a page from Don Surber. Although I must admit I've never read her work.

The only surprise here is that the NYT ever attempted to make a token hire to try for the appearance of being balanced in their reporting.

The NYT stopped having a division between the news and op/ed sections at least 20-30 years ago. Did she really think she was going to change that?

So being the victim of the 'cancel culture' finally woke her up? Where was her voice after the Tom Cotton editorial fiasco? I'd like to believe she's had a change of heart, but I'd bet she'll be carrying a pitchfork along with the rest of the 'burn the witch' crowd when re-employed.

This letter is actually quite good, and would provide some decent educational points if distributed widely to our clueless woke 20-somethings. Unfortunately, most would feel like it invaded their "safe space"...

Bari needs to follow the money. If she did, she would not wonder at why the Times - Liberal even decades ago, has descended into depths of journalistic malpractice that would make the old scandal sheets blush. Its called 'Paid-For Foreign Propaganda' my dear. Too many investors of 'The Paper of Record' have goals and agenda's totally at odds with the idea of American Freedom, or any free discourse of ideas.

She took the job at the NY Slimes to enhance her resume, and to give this birdcage liner a more balanced opinion. The entrenched Marxists at the paper were having none of this balanced BS.

This woman will be excoriated by the left in 3, 2, 1. I imagine there will be a plethora of threats and language foul enough to embarrass Lenny Bruce. She may be hard pressed to find work in her choosen field. The left will not be questioned nor tolerate dissent.

She remains a progressive whose first reaction to the Covington boys was to believe that they were all smug Nazis. She's a fan of Occasional Cortex; she criticized Tusli Gabbard and others without accurate information. She has a long, long, long way to go before she understands what "woke" really means and where the truth is. Ramona (the Pest)

Good intentions and strong final letter but it's like barking at the moon when the NYT is unable to change even if it wanted to. The disease has "progressed" too far and the only outcome is death.

yes, yes, #18 she has steeped in a pool of atrophied braincells, associated only with people of like "mind", learned the verbiage, never read the opposing interpretation of historical events, and so on, and so she with so many others they fit the definition of bigot. The need to know the Truth is a motivation which just never crosses their minds... in part because all along their academic and social way they have only known and accepted only what is familiar. This is also why (i think), so many of these "types" are so susceptible to the idea of totalitarianism, although they might not use the terminology. until, something happens. I call it wonderment, They start to wonder about something... Goebbels said that the most dangerous person (to the totalitarian regime) is the one who questions, who doubts. We have had the enjoyment of getting to "know" via Fox, a number of people who have come out of the Left (not so many out of entertainment, but intellectuals, thinkers, writers). We have listened to them describe ostracization, harassment, and every kind of vituperation. But they haven't backed down. I admire the courage. It isn't easy to be scapegoated or castigated by one's associates, even friends and even family. Who knows whether or not Weiss's incipient awakening will become truly liberating for her. If so, it will benefit all of us who care about truth, about liberty, about our great Republic.

Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, the lawmaker tapped to preside over President Trump's impeachment trial, has been hospitalized, his spokesman said. The 80-year-old Senate president pro tempore was taken to a local hospital and is under observation after he complained that he did not feel well after overseeing the swearing-in of senators as jurors in the trial earlier Tuesday. "This evening, Senator Leahy was in his Capitol office and was not feeling well," Leahy spokesman David Carle said in a statement. "He was examined in the Capitol by the Attending Physician.

Is a rebellion against President Trump brewing in federal courts in the District of Columbia? We ask because of the latest development in the case of General Michael Flynn. A judge has questioned whether Mr. Trump's pardon of the general might be "too broad." The judge who made that comment isn't handling the Flynn case. His comment is shocking, though, while the judge who is sitting on General Flynn's case has yet to respond to the government's motion that the case be dismissed as pardoned. It was back in July that these columns first warned that Judge Emmet Sullivan, who

Of all that has been disclosed so far in John Bolton’s campaign to get his book published, the most significant--at least to us--is the classified information non-disclosure agreement that binds Mr. Bolton to keep our national secrets. It starts with the words “intending to be bound.” It describes his obligations in detail. It places the burdens on Mr. Bolton. It ends with his signature. So whatever else is bound up in this dispute, one of the issues will be the value of Mr. Bolton’s word. We understand one question in the lawsuit the government just filed will be

As we reported two days ago, Joe Biden completely made no sense when he was trying to explain the Wuhan coronavirus relief bill. It was really bad and it explains why they’re afraid to have him deliver an address to Congress or do any kind of a real solo press conference, because at this point they have to be afraid this is all going to fall apart if he does anything live and this all becomes too obvious to the American people. But there’s only so long that they can hold this off. And it’s getting worse, as video today revealed. Biden was holding an event to announce the nomination

During the interviews on Sunday, Manchin repeatedly claimed that he was not open to ending the filibuster because he did not want to strip the minority party of their power in the Senate, but signaled that he was open to changing it.Fox News host Chris Wallace asked Manchin if he would consider “reforming the filibuster” if “Republicans

Nancy Pelosi’s top priority is to turn America into a one-party nation ruled by Democrats. Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab. The bill eviscerates state voting laws and forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote. Noncitizens are obligated to identify themselves and opt out,

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.

Appearing on Yahoo!

The Washington Times in 2019 first reported Democrats’ bid to strip the longtime FBI director’s name from the bureau’s headquarters. Mr. Cohen said the impetus to revive the bid is the new movie, “Judas and the Black Messiah.” The movie details

But somehow we missed it.” Tom Stoppard The millions of Americans who were paying attention throughout the 2020 election campaign all became painfully aware of the fact that Joe Biden’s cognitive abilities were slipping and slipping fast. His wife, as the person closest to him, should have been the one to call the campaign quits in order to reduce stress on the man. Instead, apparently so anxious to become the First Lady by any means necessary, Mrs. Biden continued to push her failing husband’s campaign forward as if he were mentally qualified.
