Breaking: Kevin Williamson Fired At The Atlantic

Kevin Williamson just was fired at the Atlantic

When The Atlantic hired him, I immediately set the count-down clock.

You cannot advocate for executing women who have abortions. It’s untenable. But I’m glad that Atlantic editor Jeffrey Goldberg finally realized in this modern era it is not edgy having an out-and-out misogynist on staff.

UPDATE 1: The great Roy Edroso weighs in. I was going to select a quote, but the whole thing is solid gold.

  1. Clicked on the article and didn’t get past the picture. I could almost smell the wafting layers of douchebaggery coming from that awful facial hair.

    Not sure why terrible people always find jobs when there are more deserving candidates.

  2. Jezebel has the greatest parody up:

    We should not have hired Cannibal Witch, an elegant writer and thinker who, we have come to believe, after serious consideration, does indeed eat children.

      Yeah, I thought about the monster-in-the-basement-we-told-you-about is a monster. But that is really Driftglass’ gig and I would feel bad infringing on it.

    Williamson, not Williams, no? In any event, I am pleased.
    This part of The Atlantic‘s letter explaining the firing is pure gold:

    Kevin is a gifted writer, and he has been nothing but professional in all of our interactions. But I have come to the conclusion that The Atlantic is not the best fit for his talents, and so we are parting ways.

    Maybe he can write for Bitches, Amirite? magazine. I can’t believe The Atlantic even considered hiring this troglodyte.

      They not only hired him, B-4, they paid him including serverence, and he only wrote 1 column. That probably was the most profitable writing he will ever do in his life.

        Whatever happened to the probationary period?
        Oh, sorry, that is just for the regular folks.
