Author, writer and editor Bari Weiss has resigned from The New York Times, complaining in a letter to Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger of “unlawful discrimination, hostile work environment, and constructive discharge.”

In the letter, Weiss wrote that she had become “the subject of constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views.”

“I have learned to brush off comments about how I’m ‘writing about the Jews again,’” Weiss writes.

Weiss, a graduate of Columbia University, is the author of the 2019 book How To Fight Anti-Semitism. For the Times, she wrote movingly about, among other topics, the 2018 deadly attack on the Tree of Life synagogue in her hometown of Pittsburgh.

Before the Times, she worked for TabletThe Wall Street Journal, and The New York Sun. In a 2018 column she wrote with her Times colleague Bret Stephens, they described themselves as “unhinged Zionists.”

In 2017, she received The Algemeiner‘s Journalist of the Year award.

“I joined the paper with gratitude and optimism three years ago,” Weiss wrote. “I was hired with the goal of bringing in voices that would not otherwise appear in your pages: first-time writers, centrists, conservatives and others who would not naturally think of The Times as their home.”

She warned that “the lessons that ought to have followed the [2016 US presidential] election — lessons about the importance of understanding other Americans, the necessity of resisting tribalism, and the centrality of the free exchange of ideas to a democratic society — have not been learned. Instead, a new consensus has emerged in the press, but perhaps especially at this paper: that truth isn’t a process of collective discovery, but an orthodoxy already known to an enlightened few whose job is to inform everyone else.” Read more at Algemeiner
