The New Yorker mentioned Monday that it had suspended the employees author Jeffrey Toobin after a Zoom name final week amongst workers of the journal and WNYC radio through which he reportedly uncovered himself.
“I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera,” Mr. Toobin mentioned in an announcement a couple of report on Monday by Vice. “I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers.”
“I thought I had muted the Zoom video,” he added. “I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me.” In a textual content message, he declined to elaborate.
A spokeswoman for The New Yorker, the place Mr. Toobin has labored for greater than 25 years, mentioned in an announcement that Mr. Toobin “has been suspended while we investigate the matter.”
Mr. Toobin is the author of nine books, including “The Oath: The Obama White House and the Supreme Court,” “The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court” and “Too Close to Call.” His book “The Run of His Life” was adapted for television as the FX series “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.”
His latest book is “True Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Investigation of Donald Trump.” Doubleday, which published the book, did not immediately respond to an inquiry about Mr. Toobin.
