NY Times writer Jazmine Hughes resigns after accusing Israel of ‘genocide’
A New York Times writer has “resigned” after signing a letter falsely accusing Israel of genocide against the Palestinian people — and denouncing her own paper’s coverage of the country’s war against Hamas.
Jazmine Hughes, a staff writer for New York Times Magazine, left the publication Friday, the paper told staffers in an email obtained by The Post.
“While I respect that she has strong convictions, this was a clear violation of The Times’s policy on public protest,” said magazine editor Jake Silverstein. “This policy, which I fully support, is an important part of our commitment to independence.”
“She and I discussed that her desire to stake out this kind of public position and join in public protests isn’t compatible with being a journalist at The Times, and we both came to the conclusion that she should resign,” Silverstein continued.
