TCOTS News Exclusive: The New York Slimes, Er, Times Is Hiring

20 May 2014 @ 08:34

DATELINE: THE HAMPTONS

Note: This is an exclusive, therefore, if you quote from this report, you must mention that this is a ‘TCOTS News Exclusive’ — either that or send us a bottle of Jack.
TCOTS News has exclusively learned that The New York Times is hiring and that it has issued a new Response To Job Application letter.

From one of our best souses [yeah, it's that strange ( but hilarious) Manhattan Infidel fellow], we have obtained the contents of the letter.

Two highlights:

Dear applicant:

Thank you for applying for a position at the New York Times. As you may be aware the position of Executive Editor was recently vacated by Jill Abamson, after it was discovered that she was a real woman and not one of the fake ones we in the newsroom enjoy hanging out with.

While Ms. Abramson’s firing may us make look bad in the short run, we’d like to assure all applicants that the New York Times is committed to diversity, as this recent photo of our newsroom makes clear.

See that guy in the back? He might be eastern European!

Yes. That person in the blue shirt. No not that one. The other one. While not a negro this mystery person in the blue shirt may possibly be of Eastern European origin or even Italian. As we like to say in the newsroom, he was displaying “negro-like tendencies.”

And…

As an applicant to the Times your application will be “blind-reviewed” by experts in the field of journalism.

Your skin color, race, gender and sexual identity will be unknown to them. Though if your cover letter contains no spelling errors, run-on sentences, grammatical mistakes or even expresses a coherent thought we will assume that you are writing from a position of “White privilege” and you will be disqualified.
