More double standards, more blatant racism from the left, but when it directed towards whites it ok.

The NYT has released a statement:
Our statement in response to criticism of the hiring of Sarah Jeong.
I'll quote the statement in its entirety and folks can judge for themselves:
We hired Sarah Jeong because of the exceptional work she has done covering the internet and technology at a range of respected publications.
Her journalism and the fact that she is a young Asian woman have made her a subject of frequent online harassment. For a period of time she responded to that harassment by imitating the rhetoric of her harassers. She sees now that this approach only served to feed the vitriol that we too often see on social media. She regrets it, and The Times does not condone it.
We had candid conversations with Sarah as part of our thorough vetting process, which included a review of her social media history. She understands that this type of rhetoric is not acceptable at The Times and we are confident that she will be an important voice for the editorial board moving forward.
My thought is that I'm not impressed. I haven't found any apology from her. Apparently she doesn't regret the hatefulness or the racism, just that it "only served to feed the vitriol." I guess she didn't like the competition. She wanted to be the only one talking trash.
So the NYT is staying with the "I'm just responding in kind" arguement.
It's seems there are dozens of examples of her doing this.
Anyone of those tweets by her would have gotten her post removed here on ATS and probably a time out ban.

Last dying breath while trying to keep relevance for the NYT.
I think she makes it less than 12 months before a major PR issue happens and they are forced to fire her.
