A famous columnist for the American channel CNN returned to television this Thursday after an eight-month suspension. The journalist had masturbated on Zoom during a video conference with his colleagues from the magazine The New Yorker.

Jeffrey Toobin had exhibited during the virtual meeting, thinking he had cut his camera and “we could not” see him, he explained on Thursday. The 61-year-old apologized for his “deeply silly and indefensible” gesture. Lawyer and columnist, regular consultant on CNN, the journalist was suspended by the New Yorker in October 2020 and disappeared from television screens.

The American magazine fired him in November but CNN simply dismissed him to deal with his “personal problems”. During his long months off the air, Jeffrey Toobin says he “tried to be a better person”. In particular, he received “therapy” and volunteered at a food bank. He should soon resume his post as a consultant, the channel said on its site.
