I don't believe for a second that this is the whole story. I don't believe that the reporter wrote that for publication.

The last five of our nine most recent hires have been diverse candidates.

This shows what "diversity" really means. Four of the hires being white males is part of what should make the totality of the hires a diverse group.
Failing at maintaining Lurker status.

Do you believe that the editor genuinely thought they were hacked and his first fake apology was based on that belief?

That would have been my gut reaction too but I would have investigated more before posting it. There is no way that was written for publication and it looks like what a hacker would post.

It's possible he wrote it for himself when marking/editing the pics and thought he'll update it before publishing, but forgot.

Thatís what I would think is the most likely possibility. Easier than assuming the whole system got hacked just to change one caption.

That's for sure what happened. What else?

Of course he didnít intend to publish it. The question is if things like this were routinely shred around the newsroom and then deleted before publication. That would be a reflection of a pervasive culture in the newsroom.

He probably wrote it to upload to DDF, but then forgot to change the caption.

You mean behaving like teenagers and/or goyim? Is that news to anyone?

Maybe wanted to fire him for personal reasons, so they made it look like he made that caption to give them grounds to fire him

of course that is what happened, but there is a review process which failed.

Unfortunately they lost some Hispanic diversity today. So sad.

Why not get a little bit more diverse and hire a Jewish writer?
Lkwd should have a few that are qualified...
I wonder if this ever entered their mind

It was raised in the past. Nobody seemed to be interested at the time.

Problem is, we can end up with someone that bashes the community to show that he's impartial.
