Report: The Washington Post has parted ways with Felicia Sonmez

You’d never have guessed that the big news of the week wouldn’t be the assassination attempt on a Supreme Court justice — no, it was the newsroom drama at the Washington Post. Dave Weigel, who retweeted a joke and then thought better of it, was suspended without pay. His colleague, Felicia Sonmez, was deeply offended by the joke and let the world know if a long series of Twitter posts. She took the advice to “please stop” as an attack, and she also didn’t seem impressed with the Washington Post’s statement that the atmosphere in the newsroom was “collegial” — how could it be collegial when sexist jokes could be retweeted?  “Right now, the Post is a place where many of us fear our trauma will be used against us, based on the company’s past actions,” she tweeted.

We’re not sure if the Post finally had enough and gave her the boot or if she stuck to her principles and walked, but The Daily Beast is reporting that she and the Post have parted ways.

Was she fired or did she quit? The Daily Beast says it’s a “developing story,” so we’re certain to find out soon.

Update:

The Washington Post’s own media reporter is saying she was terminated.
