The New Yorker has suspended legal reporter Jeffrey Toobin. Sources tell VICE it’s because he exposed himself during a Zoom call last week between members of the New Yorker and WNYC radio.
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.
Toobin may have been suspended by The New Yorker, but he appeared on CNN on Saturday.
