Several weeks after a masthead exodus, the surnames of which were a near parody, in Politico we learn of further erosion to the Jewish-identity-actualized-through-U.S.-politics magazine…er, I mean ‘iconic liberal‘ magazine… The New Republic:
Four more members of The New Republic’s masthead resigned this week, dealing yet another blow to the already depleted magazine, POLITICO has learned.
Managing editor Linda Kinstler, deputy editor Amanda Silverman, assistant literary editor Becca Rothfeld and reporter Yishai Schwartz all submitted their resignations to the TNR leadership. Silverman and Schwartz will leave this week, Kinstler and Rothfeld in January.
You can’t make this stuff up.
