The New York Times, the self-professed organ of extremist left-wingery, is facing intense ridicule after an internal memo noted that the newsroom is infested with bedbugs.
The internal memo was leaked to the New York Post:
According to an internal memo obtained by The Post, the NY Times said it “discovered evidence of bedbugs in a wellness room on the second floor, a couch on the third floor and a booth on the fourth floor.”
“In an abundance of caution, the second-floor room has been temporarily closed, the booth has been blocked off and the couch has been removed to be treated and professionally cleaned,” the memo said. Exterminators also swept the area, according to the memo.
The Post also noted that the wellness room and furniture “were all added to make the place feel more, oh, startupy and digital and youthful back in 2017,” one source sarcastically noted. “You wouldn’t have had any of this stuff in the old newsroom of chairs and desks.”
Naturally, social media had a field day with this story:

And all this time I’ve been thinking the rats in the newsroom were the problem.

This guffaw inducing situation comes days after the paper’s editor, Dean Baquet, was heard on an audio recording admitting that he built his paper entirely around the fake “Russia” hoax story and is now stuck with where to take the paper since the “collusion” accusation has been debunked.
