Dangerous Dum Dums

Bari Weiss brought "the intellectual dark web" to the New York Times and is reasonably assumed to be responsible for every alt-right friendly thing on their opinion pages. Also she occasionally writes really really stupid not very precocious 8th grader level stuff, like her My Trip To Australia piece, which should be embarrassing to all who work there and yell at readers for not buying subscriptions.

I'd like to say she is embarrassing to all who work there, but she's just a rather obvious manifestation of the general mindset so I doubt it. It's a problem when the most important newspaper in the country hires dangerous dumdums, and they hire many of them.
