This is the first NYT article discussing Jeong with comments enabled. They are absolutely brutal. Maybe the NYT shouldn't have assumed their average lib reader thinks about race issues the same way as blue-haired twitter dykes?

Top five reader picks:

SMK NC

Charlotte, NCAug. 9

While I agree someone should be hired on the totality of their work, it’d be nice to see some evidence of self discipline on their part to refrain from tweeting anything and everything that comes to mind.

110,000 tweets? Did she ever think of something and NOT say it?

Common Sense

NYCAug. 9

This author excuses the tweets as part of a body of work shared through Twitter that was poorly thought through, crafted in haste. Therefore the tweets don't count and this journalist must remain at the NYT. However what these tweets show is that this journalist consistently misused the tools of her craft - words and ideas - in a way that was shockingly immature. There's an old Sunday school lesson about gossiping and meanness: A pastor gives young children a tube of toothpaste and says squeeze. Then he says put the toothpaste back, which is clearly impossible. The lesson: Once words leave your mouth, or phone, they can't be taken back - they are permanent.

Respect your words. This journalist did not and should not remain at the NYT.

Let he who is without a bad tweet cast the first stone.

[ Fine, then I will cast away.

The New York Times does not need to have a person who writes racist comments writing for the Times. ]

My argument is a bit simpler. Of all the possible people to hire, I am certain that both the Atlantic and the New York Times could manage to find somebody who is both well qualified and does not have a record of hateful rhetoric. The search may have required just a bit more time and effort, but it would have been time and effort well spent.

Of course the tweets don't reflect the "core truth of who she is". I"m sure she's lovely - and was undoubtedly provoked - but that's not the point. This wasn't one racist tweet, it was a pattern of behavior; a choice. It's unfathomable to me that the NYT would put her on the editorial board. I'm dismayed, and that's why I canceled my subscription.

One thing I truly don't understand is how it is not completely clear to the average man that these type of people are 100% against them in every way they don't want them to succeed in any way at all. They will bend over backwards to keep these people in power yet do anything within their means to destroy anyone who says even anything slightly controversial in the liberal viewpoint. There is no debate or life with these people and there is only one solution

My own misgivings about Jeong’s tweets have less to do with their substance than with their often snarky tone, occasional meanness, and sheer number: 103,000 over some nine years, averaging about 31 tweets a day. (Donald Trump only averages 11.)

I hope the NYT reads the comments carefully. The comments suggest that there is a sizable population of reasonable and decent people who are bothered by her tweets and don't excuse them as "ironic" or "performative." I hope Jeong and her defenders don't assume all the criticism they hear is coming from alt-right trolls and therefore feel it is ok to ignore.

A fellow NYT writer made a snarky remark about Jeong and linked to this article in a tweet ... then promptly deleted the tweet and apologized! Sad!

Elizabeth Williamson at the NYT. No idea who she was until yesterday. At least the NYT felt they had to explain the pressure on her to pull the tweet ...

“In social media posts, our journalists must not express partisan opinions, promote political views, endorse candidates, make offensive comments or do anything else that undercuts The Times’s journalistic reputation,” read one of the guidelines made public by the Times. “Our journalists should be especially mindful of appearing to take sides on issues that The Times is seeking to cover objectively.”
