Jeffrey Toobin, 60, legal journalist for CNN and The New Yorker, has been banned by the magazine after masturbating during a video call with his colleagues. Toobin himself does not deny: ‘I made an embarrassing mistake. I thought my camera and microphone were off. ‘
The writers of The New Yorker and the employees of radio station WNYC took part in the video call. WNYC also creates the podcasts for the magazine, and during the video call, they prepared for coverage of the US election. During a pause, Toobin switched to another video call. According to two people present during the conversation, Toobin would have switched to telephone sex at that time.
The two testified anonymously and separately to news medium Vice. In a response, Toobin does not deny: ‘I made an embarrassing mistake because I thought I had muted my image and sound. I apologize to my wife, family, friends and colleagues. I thought no one could see me. ‘
The spokeswoman for The New Yorker, where Toobin had worked for more than 25 years, said in a statement that the Toobin has been suspended and the case is under investigation.
“I’m pretty sure Toobin didn’t realize we could see him,” Masha Gessen said in an interview. Gessen joined the video call in which the participants played roles that simulated what could happen on an election night. Tobin had the role of the courts. Gessen played President Donald Trump. “I suspect he didn’t know we all came back to a live video call after a 10-minute break,” said Gessen. All the while, the participants went on as if nothing was wrong.
Toobin is also a legal analyst for CNN. CNN said in a statement that Toobin, who has worked for CNN since 2002, has requested a few days off to deal with a personal matter and has been given that time as well. Toobin has not been active on his social media since then either.
