On Wednesday the paper announced the addition of Sarah Jeong to their editorial board as the “newest in a fab group of recent additions.” As the Daily Caller‘s Amber Athey notes, Jeong previously wrote for the Verge and authored a book about online harassment and free speech titled “The Internet of Garbage.”

oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men
