Huh? BEN SHAPIRO Heaps Praises on the NY Times For Standing by Racist Sarah Jeong After Defending Pedo-Tweeting James Gunn
This latest move by Ben Shapiro doesn’t make a lot of sense…
The New York Times announced this week that Sarah Jeong would be the newest member to their editorial board.
Jeong’s Twitter feed is FILLED with racist white-hating filth.
After major backlash from the conservative media over Jeong’s racist tweets, The New York Times released a statement standing by their new hire; they even painted Jeong as a victim.
“Her journalism and the fact that she is a young Asian woman have made her the subject of frequent online harassment. For a period of time she responded to that harassment by imitating the rhetoric of her harassers,” The NY Times said in a PR statement.

The Editor-in-Chief of the Daily Wire, Ben Shapiro, heaped praises on The New York Times Thursday for standing by their new hire, Sarah Jeong even though dozens of racist tweets.
Ben Shapiro tweeted: Good for The New York Times. This will blow over, but it does indeed demonstrate that there is a massive double standard on such hirings in the media, and in media coverage.

Ben Shapiro got slammed by Trump supporters on Twitter.
Ben Shapiro forgets his own positions:
Milo no platforming, good
Roseanne firing, good
James Gunn pedo firing, bad
Anti-white racist working for NYT, good
Candace going on InfoWars, bad
FBI spying on Trump, good
Total lack of self awareness. Gotta get dat money doe! pic.twitter.com/6xe9pro42S

Last week Ben Shapiro defended James Gunn who posted dozens and possibly hundreds of sick pedo tweets.
But Ben Shapiro agreed with ABC for firing Roseanne.
For me, they're both private corporations that get to decide how certain speech impacts their product. So while I think the NFL handled things poorly, I'm not supremely troubled by their decision, and I think ABC was right to dump Roseanne. (END)
