Center-right column in major publication made staffers feel "unsafe"
There is a growing trend of journalists reporting their own colleagues to Human Resources over political opinions that make them feel "unsafe".
That's according to a post on the Singal-Minded newsletter, which highlights two anonymous cases of journalists grassing up other journalists for their thought crimes.
In the first case, a staffer at a major publication wrote about a social justice controversy. In the piece, he took a center-right position that would be in line with mainstream thinking but "at odds with the progressive consensus".
As a result, a number of the staffer's colleagues filed HR complaints, asserting that the column made them feel "unsafe".
"The staffers leveling the complaint were so upset and disturbed by Bob's center-right column that they felt their physical or psychological safety had been threatened," reports the newsletter.
