A woke meltdown at the Washington Post

“Just over a week ago, Post reporter Sonmez took umbrage when a colleague, David Weigel, retweeted the following joke: ‘Every girl is bi. You just have to figure out if it’s polar or sexual.’ Admittedly, I too find this joke highly offensive. Because it is not funny, which should be the sole metric by which a joke is judged acceptable. [Felicia] Sonmez, on the other hand, saw the tweet as justification for starting a war in the newsroom. First she got into a public fight with Weigel and another fellow Post reporter, Jose Del Real, and then she took to the barricades using the newsroom’s Slack messaging service. By last Friday, the national editor was trying to quell the Sonmez-led insurgency. … It seems that this time, however, even the Post has had enough of its Mean Girl journalists.” (06/11/22)
