New Yorker Suspends Journalist For Exposing Himself On Conference Call

The New Yorker has suspended journalist Jeffrey Toobin for exposing himself on a Zoom conference call. According to some sources, the legal analyst was caught on camera with his pants down and his genitals exposed. He has been suspended while the company investigates the matter. More from VICE:


Toobin said in a statement to Motherboard: “I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends, and co-workers.”


“I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video,” he added.


New Yorker spokesperson Natalie Raabe said: “Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended while we investigate the matter.”


Toobin’s Conde Nast email has been disabled and he has not tweeted since October 13. He did, however, appear on CNN, where he is the network’s chief legal analyst, on Saturday. “Jeff Toobin has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted,” CNN said in a statement.


It appears on a cursory look that this was not intentional and was an accident that happened while on a conference call. It is unclear as to what will happen to Toobin but considering that the me-to era has been extremely harsh to its dissidents it may be the end for Toobin.
