The New York Times Did the Right Thing With Glenn Thrush

They struck the right balance between discipline and grace.

I am not a Glenn Thrush fan. I think his Twitter feed, even excluding the Podesta emails, shows him to be left leaning…

But Thrush has behaved badly with several women. He behaved inappropriately and got suspended from the Times. Glenn Thrush also has a drinking problem and, unlike some, went to actual rehab. I really think we should not be further destroying lives, but showing grace in rebuilding lives where possible. And that includes reporters with whom I may disagree.
