NY Times ‘Very Concerned’ Over Tweets By Its Nazi-Befriending Editorial Board Hire

The New York Times is investigating past tweets by Quinn Norton, a journalist who just joined the paper’s editorial board, HuffPost has learned.

At around noon on Tuesday, the company’s communications department tweeted that it had hired Norton as its “lead opinion writer on the power, culture and consequences of technology.”

Definitely something different for the Times.

Update: Quinn Norton was fired by the times this evening, on her Twitter account she explains who she is and frankly she makes a good argument for context or the absence of it. This is looking like a Twitter lynching.
