A high-ranking editor at The New York Times was demoted following recent incidents that resulted in a heavy backlash on social media.
The Times confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday that the editor, Jonathan Weisman, has been demoted for his "serious lapses in judgment."
"Jonathan Weisman met with [New York Times Executive Editor] Dean Baquet today and apologized for his recent serious lapses in judgment. As a consequence of his actions, he has been demoted and will no longer be overseeing the team that covers Congress or be active on social media.

So that is something the NYT will hand out a punishment but calling Trump a Russian asset without any evidence is okay? Well, no liberal bias there!
What exactly did he do wrong...
Partisan Media Shills update.
How dare he say anything that even remotely approaches the truth!!!!!
This is good news. Let the NYT fill their ranks with delusional SJWs even more, destroying their (undeserved) brand even faster.
The Equator is a menagerie lion running around the earth.
He was responsible for an accurate headline: Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism."
Accuracy does not matter to the NYT. Only the agenda matters.
I think at the NY Slimes TDS takes on more than one meaning there. For sure they suffer greatly from Trump Derangement Syndrome, but they are also suffering from Truth Denial Sickness as well!
“What exactly did he do wrong...”
1. He was responsible for a headline after the El Paso shooting, that failed to bash Trump (”Trump urged unity vs. racism). They literally had to stop the presses, and change it to ‘Assailing Hate But Not Guns’.
2. He was honest in a tweet that Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, where not really what people think of as “Midwesterners”.
He is paid to promote the Leftist Party Line, and such deviations must be crushed by the Party.
Sounds like communism.
Apparently an old school jew who would not be sheister by the Nazi Tlaib et al that the uniparty/democrat party has become
Seems like AOV made a coup there at the NYT more than in Congress, but soon congress will follow the islamoleftist nazi party line
Total Marxist style propaganda narrative control BS. He didnt adhere to lefty religion.
Not enthusiastic enough during the two-minute hate. Off to the reeducation camps!
“So that is something the NYT will hand out a punishment for, but calling Trump a Russian asset without any evidence is okay?”
They have regularly referred to Trump (on the front page) as “the Siberian candidate.” This reference isn’t in a twitter feed, but displayed prominently “above the fold” both in the print edition front page and on the online home page.
After the Mueller report came out, saying they couldn’t find any evidence for such an assertion, how come Paul Krugman wasn’t fired?
Replacing libraries, the internet has
become the suppository of human knowledge.
