As Twitchy has reported, New York University has made some great hires in its journalism school recently. Teen Vogue’s Lauren Duca is going to be teaching a class on feminist journalism by having her students read articles from Teen Vogue, and Talia Lavin, the former New Yorker fact-checker who smeared a Marine Corps veteran and ICE analyst as a Nazi by misinterpreting his tattoo, will be teaching a class on “Reporting on the Far Right.”
Apparently, Levin has gotten a lot of grief over this new teaching gig, and she’s using the attention to solicit donations from anyone who’d like to become her patron.
if you like bitches who don’t back down and get choads to self destruct at the mere thought of me teaching students, consider becoming a patron at https://t.co/fnWlQ6dmf1

Pro tip: It’s a good idea to back down when you misidentify someone as a neo-Nazi. So yeah, we question her credentials as a teacher of right-wing journalism when she cries wolf at a platoon symbol from Afghanistan.
She’s certainly learned humility from her non-Nazi tattoo experience. https://t.co/PtyvuqmxRV

If I donate to your patreon does it come with the added benefit of being called a nazi for no reason https://t.co/3uDSheZvua
