White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham ‘Disgusted’ by Antisemitism from New York Times Editor
Punching back twice as hard.
“I am disgusted but not surprised by this latest revelation out of the New York Times,” Grisham said in a statement provided exclusively to Breitbart News. “Will there be consequences? Doubtful. The New York Times is too busy weaponizing journalism to harass this President and the people who work for him to bother holding their own people accountable.”
Grisham’s comments come in response to a Breitbart News expose that found Wright-Piersanti, an editor on the politics desk at the Times, made a number of racist and antisemitic comments on Twitter over the years. In response to the Breitbart News investigation, Wright-Piersanti deleted several of the tweets and issued an apology for his “offensive” comments.
I have deleted tweets from a decade ago that are offensive. I am deeply sorry.

Many say the apology is meaningless, and something the Times would never accept from any public official guilty of the same actions its politics editor has admitted.
No way the @nytimes would accept this flippant “apology” from any individual they cover who had “a years-long history of antisemitic and racist comments on his Twitter page.” https://t.co/tC4Wspt5Y3https://t.co/iHMrg7Fmpg
