Washington Post Reprimands Reporter Dave Weigel For “Reprehensible” Retweet

From CNN’s Reliable Sources:

WaPo on Friday reprimanded politics reporter David Weigel for a sexist joke that he retweeted and which he ultimately apologized for. Weigel’s retweet was spotlighted publicly by his colleague, Felicia Sonmez, who recently had a discrimination lawsuit against the paper dismissed, a decision her attorney has said she plans to appeal. Sonmez sarcastically wrote on Twitter that it is “fantastic to work at a news outlet where retweets like this are allowed.” She attached a screen grab showing Weigel retweet a user who had joked, “Every girl is bi. You just have to figure out if it’s polar or sexual.”
