    Andrew Sullivan penned his last op-ed in New York Magazine on Friday after previously announcing that he would no longer be a columnist for the outlet. Sullivan began the column by stressing that the magazine "has every right to hire and fire anyone it wants when it comes to the content of what it wants to publish," but also indicated "the quality of my work does not appear to be the problem." "What has happened, I think, is relatively simple: A critical mass of the staff and management at New York Magazine and Vox Media no longer want to associate with me, and in a time of ever tightening budgets, I’m a luxury item they don’t want to afford. And that’s entirely their prerogative," Sullivan explained. "They seem to believe, and this is increasingly the orthodoxy in mainstream media, that any writer not actively committed to critical theory in questions of race, gender, sexual orientation, and gender identity is actively, physically harming co-workers merely by existing in the same virtual space. Actually attacking, and even mocking, critical theory’s ideas and methods, as I have done continually...
    Andrew Sullivan wrote his final column for New York magazine, where he has worked since 2016, on Friday after revealing he was leaving for reasons that were 'self-evident' Conservative columnist Andrew Sullivan has revealed he is leaving New York magazine because he misses writing freely without being in a 'defensive crouch' - as he bemoaned mainstream media for no longer having diverse opinions. In his final column on Friday for the magazine where he has worked for four years, Sullivan said that a 'critical mass' of staff at the company no longer wanted to associate with him due, in part, to his criticisms of critical theory or woke culture.  The self-described 'anti-Trump conservative' said some staff and management had come to believe that any writer who doesn't conform to critical theory was harming co-workers 'merely by existing in the same virtual space'.  He said that if the mainstream media would no longer host a diversity of opinion, it was up to the nonmainstream media to pick up the slack.  Sullivan had revealed on Wednesday that he was leaving the magazine, which...
    Vox Media said Thursday it will lay off about 6 percent of its workforce, or around 70 people, as the coronavirus continues to ravage the publishing industry. The owner of New York magazine, as well as news sites like Recode, Curbed and the Verge, said the bulk of the layoffs among its staff of 1,200 will mainly affect the nearly 100 workers who had previously been furloughed in May. The company, which bought New York Magazine in September 2019 and also owns sites including SB Nation, Grub Street and The Cut, said it’s no longer expecting an economic rebound in the second half of the year. “Our hope in May was that business would bounce back in the months that followed,” Vox CEO Jim Bankoff wrote in a memo to staffers Thursday prior to an all-hands meeting in the afternoon. “As we discussed in last week’s all-hands, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the second half of the year will not rebound anywhere near our pre-COVID forecasts,” Bankoff said. “Furthermore, as cases rise tragically across the country and many of our...

That’s me.’...
