Wrong employer in infoboxEdit

According to her own website, she is now "a writer for the New York Times Editorial Board" & has bylines "at the Verge, the Atlantic, the Washington Post, New York Times Magazine, Motherboard, Forbes, the Guardian, and more." So it seems to me that her main employer is the New York Times, not The Verge. Aapjes (talk) 11:36, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

Indeed, thanks. I have updated it. --JBL (talk) 12:51, 15 May 2019 (UTC)


Please add the following update to Sarah Jeong's career.

In August 2019 Sarah Jeong decided to leave the New York Times editorial board. Her relationship continues as a contracted opinion writer for the NYT. [1]

Done. | abequinnfourteen 00:21, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Actual language from her tweetsEdit

Previous discussion on quoting Jeong's tweets failed to reach consensus, which effectively means to exclude the disputed material. Closing thread which has devolved into tit-for-tat. Nothing new here. —Sangdeboeuf (talk) 03:36, 30 September 2019 (UTC) (non-admin closure)
The following discussion has been closed. Please do not modify it.

It seems a lot of this page dances around the offensiveness of her comments and NYT silent support or lack of care about her comments.

Her Tweets are public domain for anyone to see - wouldn't it enrich the article and dialogue and better inform the reader to let them know she said:

- "Oh man, it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men.” - "Caucasians were “only fit to live underground like groveling goblins.”" - "Dumbass fucking white people" - "#CancelWhitePeople"[1]

If similar tweets were made by white supremacists/nationalists wouldn't wiki writers use this as proof of their status and be labeled as such in opening of page and categories on bottom? Rsarlls (talk) 15:09, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Why don't you go ask on some talk pages for white supremacists and nationalists instead of wasting the time of editors here rehashing stupid arguments? --JBL (talk) 15:28, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
JBL are you always this dismissive and nasty? The prior discussion around this topic was "settled" due to non agreement, yet here again she is hitting the news for coming off the NYT Board which is again tied to her Twitter utterances - yet a reader of the page would lack the ability to see the material without going to Google or Twitter - seems to defeat the purpose of a proper and thorough Wiki page.

I am indeed deeply dismissive of posts that begin by repeated stupid arguments on settled topics and end with insinuations of hypocrisy based on nothing. If you would like to be treated respectfully, you can begin by treating with respect the previous editors of this page and the fact of an established consensus. (While consensus can change, it does not change by repetition of an argument identical in all respects to the one that has been rejected, without any acknowledgement or understanding of why that happened.) --JBL (talk) 20:54, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
"stupid arguments on settled topics" - pretty superior and imperious tone, don't you think? "insinuations of hypocrisy" - wow that's like you're taking this personally. Guess that continues to explain and reconfirm why wiki editor and pageview numbers continue to shrink. Enjoy your shrinking ghetto.Rsarlls (talk) 21:06, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
Always nice to have first impressions confirmed. --JBL (talk) 21:32, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
