Jeffrey Toobin returns to CNN after masturbating live on Zoom

This is called a first class funeral! A true luminary in the United States, Jeffrey Toobin worked for almost 30 years for the major American media, from the New Yorker to ABC to the New York Times. This journalist had specialized in legal affairs and was notably talked about at the time of the OJ Simpson affair, this American football player accused of having killed his wife and her lover in the 90s. From the book that he wrote about this case, a series was made, American Crime Story : The People v. O.J. Simpson, including Cuba Gooding Jr. and David Schwimmer.

Jeffrey Toobin was therefore a highly respected journalist, until one day when, during a videoconference break, the 61-year-old exhibited her genitals in front of her colleagues, thinking we couldn’t see him. Suspended immediately by the New Yorker in October 2020, he finally made his return this Thursday, June 10 on CNN as a columnist. He took advantage of his first public reappearance to explain this story and do his mea culpa. Assuring that he thought we couldn’t see him, he apologized for his gesture “deeply foolish and indefensible”, in comments reported by AFP.

Jeffrey Toobin said he had “tried to be a better person” throughout “unhappy month” gone off-air. He notably followed a “therapy” and volunteered at a food bank. Now reinstated in the CNN team, the journalist had simply been dismissed by the American channel unlike the New Yorker who fired him. The journalist should now resume his post as a regular consultant, a spokesperson for the channel said on the CNN website.
