#MeToo Journalist Fired By Washington Post

Controversial Washington Post reporter Felicia Sonmez famously got her coworker Dave Weigel suspended after he retweeted a mildly sexist joke. But Sonmez herself got caught up in the resulting whirlwind as the Post newsroom devolved into a maelstrom of recrimination and backbiting that wound up seeing Sonmez herself fired for being such an annoying shit-stirrer.

Jimmy and The Dive’s Jackson Hinkle discuss the excesses of the #MeToo movement and whether we’ve reached a tipping point where sanity will once again prevail.

  1. "There's a backlash coming." YES! I told people that the Johnny Depp trial had far more importance than most people realised. The backlash has begun!

  2. The second anyone says something like "Is this who we are?" or "Do better!" you know they're a blank-brained sociopath just running on autopilot, trying to "win the game" by repeating the "current things we say".

  3. According to an MIT study 80% of women are currently taking some type of drug for, Bi polar and/or a mental related illnesses…..which means 20% of women are running around undiagnosed.

  4. Social media is dumb and inherently damaging. If both of these reporters had gone outside and dug a hole or stacked up rocks or something, none of this would have happened. I know JD loves the tweeter, but I've yet to see anything positive come from it or smartphones in general.

  5. Felicia did it on purpose to force the Washington Post to fire her so she could sue and settle for a million bucks. Ms. Sonmez is doing the same thing at the Washington Post right now………between the two of them they expect to collect a couple of million……..<s

  6. Kudos to The Washington Post for firing her for this off-the-wall behavior!! I never thought that would happen. Thanks as well for for the update on this story as I'd heard about the firing shortly after watching your other YouTube clip on this reporter!!
