The NY Times hires a racist to their editorial board but its all good - she regrets it, they don't condone it, and anyway, the Alt-right made her do it.
The Sarah Jeong story has unfolded since her hiring was announced by the Times on Wednesday. David French and Andrew Sullivan are excellent at explaining the contemporary progressive view that marginalized and oppressed ethnic groups and genders (currently including Harvard Law School grads writing at the Times) can experience racism but not be guilty of it. Yeah, yeah.
Robby Soave at Reason points out that a more complete appreciation of the Jeong Tweets does not seem to support her defense that she was merely responding to haters. Whatever. The Times hired her, they endorsed her, and they should own her. And when Trump reads some of her tweets at his next rally ('Dumbass f***ing white people' and 'groveling goblins' are sure to get mentioned), the Times can explain that they are not enemies of the people.
