As Twitchy told you earlier, the New York Times is dealing with D.C.-based reporter Ali Watkins by transferring her to their New York City office, where she’ll be “closely supervised and have a senior mentor.” Not the worst punishment, considering that she carried on a romantic relationship with a source.
