Additional Information on Sarah Jeong

Notwithstanding Sarah Jeong’s long history of incendiary tweets, The New York Times refused to reconsider its decision to hire her in August 2018. Said the Times in a statement: “We hired Sarah Jeong because of the exceptional work she has done … her journalism and the fact that she is a young Asian woman have made her a subject of frequent online harassment. For a period of time she responded to that harassment by imitating the rhetoric of her harassers. She regrets it, and The Times does not condone it.”
