Disgusting: CNN’s Brian Stelter Calls Colleague Jeffrey Toobin’s Masturbation Scandal On Zoom An ‘Accident’

Fox News reports, CNN’s reports Brian Stetler is being criticized for not sharing the full story about his colleague Jeffrey Toobin, who was caught masturbating in a zoom call on Monday.

Toobin has been suspended.

Vice reported that two different sources stated Toobin was seen masturbating on the call.

Stetler tweeted, “Jeffrey Toobin has been sidelined at a pivotal moment in the run-up to the presidential election. The reason: He exposed himself during a Zoom call with New Yorker colleagues in what he says was an accident. Here’s our full story.”

Neither CNN or Stetler “reliable sources” mentioned the fact that Toobin was accused of masturbating on the Zoom call.

Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti told Stetler, “Dude, the only ‘accident’ was that he got caught. You don’t ‘accidentally’ start jacking off during a video chat.”

Andi Zeisler said, “WILL NO ONE THINK OF THE GUY WHO WHIPPED OUT HIS JUNK DURING A WORK CALL. He was not ‘sidelined.’ This didn’t happen *to* him. He made a choice and that choice led to consequences. This isn’t difficult.”

John Daniel Davidson said, “Imagine a news org framing the Toobin scandal this way (saying he was ‘sidelined’ for an ‘accident,’ not suspended for sexual misconduct), and then ask yourself if you’d believe anything else that news org reported. Anything at all. You would not, and should not.”

Steven Crowder said, “”I appreciate your clarifying ‘OUR full story’, which tacitly acknowledges that CNN is not giving its readers the TRUE story. Namely that one of its chief legal analysts was masturbating on a live Zoom call with women present.”

Two sources stated that Toobin was soon masturbating in what was supposed to be a 10-minute strategy session.

The reports added that it, “seemed like Toobin was on a second video call.”

Vice reported, “The sources said that when the groups returned from their breakout rooms, Toobin lowered the camera. The people on the call said they could see Toobin touching his penis. Toobin then left the call. Moments later, he called back in, seemingly unaware of what his colleagues had been able to see, and the simulation continued.”

Toobim offered an apology for his, “embarrassingly stupid mistake.”

“I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers. I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video.”

The New Yorker confirmed, “Jeffrey Toobin has been suspended while we investigate the matter.”

CNN said, “Jeff Toobin has asked for some time off while he deals with a personal issue, which we have granted.”

Vice reported on Monday that the Zoom call, which was described as an “election simulation,” included Toobin’s New Yorker colleagues Jane Mayer, Masha Gessen, Andrew Marantz, Jelani Cobb, Evan Osnos, Sue Halpern and Dexter Filkins playing various roles including President Trump, Joe Biden, “establishment Republicans,” ‘establishment Democrats,” and “the military.” Toobin was playing “the courts.”

The detail about Toobin’s alleged masturbation was added to the report after it was initially published, as noted by Vice: “This piece has been updated with more detail about the call and the headline has been updated to reflect that Toobin was masturbating.”
