NY Times Abruptly Fires Its New Nazi-Befriending Editorial Board Hire


        The New York Times has fired journalist Quinn Norton, its
        brand new editorial board hire, HuffPost has learned. At
        around 3 p.m. on Tuesday, the paper's communications
        department tweeted that it had hired Norton as its "lead
        opinion writer on the power, culture and consequences of
        technology." Twitter users immediately began pointing to her
        past tweets, in which she's admitted she's "friends with
        various neo-Nazis" - though she says she has "never agreed
        with them." In other tweets, she's called users "fag" and used
        racial slurs.
