4. Another left wing journalist shows his respect for Western values:
The New Yorker magazine has suspended longtime writer Jeffrey Toobin after he exposed himself and masturbated during a work Zoom call.
The 60-year-old, who has written for the New Yorker for 25 years, is said to have exposed himself while on a video call with staffers from the magazine and New York public radio station WNYC last week.
He is also taking a leave of absence from CNN for whom he works on-air as a legal analyst.
Toobin apologized in a statement to Vice, saying he thought he had turned his camera off at the time of the incident.
‘I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers,’ he said.

A US tax court judge is allowing a whistleblower complaint to proceed against the Clinton Foundation after finding that the IRS “abused its discretion” when it attempted to dismiss allegations of wrongdoing by the nonprofit, according to Just The News.
Judge David Gustafson found that whistleblower John Moynihan – a former Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) official, and Larry Doyle, a corporate tax compliance expert “provided ‘specific credible documentation’ supporting their allegations” of potential legal violations by the Arkansas-based charity.
Gustafson, who struck down the IRS’s request for a summary motion, said that the agency’s Whistleblower Office wrongly denied the pair’s claims on the basis of the IRS’s Criminal Investigation (CI) office saying in an email that the complaint was closed.
The judge said he had reason to believe from the evidence that the IRS and the FBI engaged in some investigative activity.
