A Chick-Fil-A Sandwich Just Busted NYT’s Reporter Narrative

Republican Senator Tom Cotton was given the opportunity to write an op-ed in the New York Times in the summer of 2020.

The op-ed written by Cotton addressed the riots that were taking place and the left had a fit.

As a sacrificial lamb, the Times identified Adam Rubenstein as the editor as the editor seemingly to blame him for the op-ed. Mind you, his only job was to fact-check and edit the piece.

It was so bad he needed security.

“Every now and then, the group that handles security for the Times would check in on me to make sure I was safe,” Rubenstein wrote in The Atlantic on Monday. “Ever since the paper had named me as the person responsible for publishing Cotton’s op-ed, I had been receiving alarming threats.”

Rubenstein recently wrote an op-ed for The Atlantic and let the cat out of the bag.

The left went so crazy a friend contacted his girlfriend – of seven years – demanding that she “take a stand against” him. Adam must have picked the girl because she refused and they are engaged to be married.

The former editor at the Times admits that at first, he was star-struck to work at the Times however the allure quickly wore off during orientation. Rubenstein said that during orientation they were playing a get-to-you-know game and was asked what his favorite sandwich was.

Below is what took place:

We had to do an icebreaker: Pick a Starburst out of a jar and then answer a question. My Starburst was pink, I believe, and so I had to answer the pink prompt, which had me respond with my favorite sandwich. Russ & Daughters’ Super Heebster came to mind, but I figured mentioning a $19 sandwich wasn’t a great way to win new friends. So I blurted out, “The spicy chicken sandwich from Chick-fil-A,” and considered the ice broken.

The HR representative leading the orientation chided me: “We don’t do that here. They hate gay people.” People started snapping their fingers in acclamation. I hadn’t been thinking about the fact that Chick-fil-A was transgressive in liberal circles for its chairman’s opposition to gay marriage. “Not the politics, the chicken,” I quickly said, but it was too late. I sat down, ashamed.

Well, the Times is not liking all the backlash they are getting and “reporter” Nicole Hannah-Jones claims that the incident never took place.

Jon Levine at the New York Post asked how she would know such a thing and if she does “not like Adam?”

“I’ve worked at the NYT for nearly a decade. That’s how I know,” she replied.

The backlash isn’t coming from “the right” either.

Biden 2020 DNC delegate and Obama campaign worker Christopher Hale ripped Jones.

It was also Jesse Singal, former New York Magazine writer that reported it took “10 minutes” of work to find out how rigorous Rubenstein’s op-ed was fact checked before being published.
