James Bennet’s Resignation Proves the Woke Scolds Are Taking Over The New York Times

James Bennet resigned as editorial page editor of The New York Times on Sunday, following a successful campaign by irate staffers to oust the person who published an inflammatory op-ed by Sen. Tom Cotton (R–Ark.) that suggested the government deploy federal troops to “restore order in our streets.”

“Last week we saw a significant breakdown in our editing processes, not the first we’ve experienced in recent years,” Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger said in a note to the paper’s staff. “Both of us concluded that James would not be able to lead the team through the next leg of change that is required.”
