That was fast:
“David Brooks has resigned from his position at the Aspen Institute following reporting by BuzzFeed News about conflicts of interest between the star New York Times columnist and funders of a [Weave] program he led for the think tank. …
“Over the past 24 hours, BuzzFeed News discovered new evidence of potential conflicts. On March 15 of last year, as Americans faced a deadly pandemic, Brooks appeared on ‘Meet The Press’ and offered some advice. ‘We need to take moral steps to make ourselves decent neighbors to each other as we go through this thing. I think people should get on Nextdoor, this sort of “Facebook for neighbors,”’ he said. Left unsaid by Brooks was that Nextdoor, a social network for neighborhoods, had donated $25,000 to Weave.”
Brooks is such an obvious hypocrite and moral scold, this is really Schadenfreude injected directly into my heart.
