Quotes from the news wire:
I know that I did what I needed to do. It wasn’t about proving a point as much as this: I write about the importance of viewpoint diversity and about why more speech is always better, all the time. If I read about this situation, I’d be writing a column defending the writer, so I thought, how can I write about these issues and get paralyzed by fear of job security when I’m confronted with it in my real life? It seemed hypocritical to me to do anything different.
I have never operated under the assumption that everything I pitched would get on the site, at least in the initial way I pitched it, but I never expected something to go through the editorial process and then get taken down, i received a total of zero direct messages from colleagues telling me they disagreed with the column or were angry about my writing it or expressing an interest in talking so we could hear where each of us were coming from.
I do think they haven’t quite figured out what they want from an opinion section yet, and I didn’t think it made sense to be their guinea pig any longer, given how this all went down, i have had colleagues reaching out to me telling me they disagreed with the decision to have the piece taken down and think this whole episode was handled with a lack of transparency.
