Richard Epstein, Chicago Law, NYU Law, Hoover Defining Ideas; in re: The resignation of Bari Weiss from the New York Times in a letter that lays out the abuse she’s undergone in the Times’s Cancel Culture. Impossible to distinguish between the editorial and the news sections. A demand for loyalty oath; vilify anyone who disagrees on environment, race and gender, Trump, and the rest. Bankrupt. You may be able to increase your readership 10-15% with this sort of virulence, but you might also lose 30% of other readers.
