Camerota:"I feel like we should address what's happened in the months since we've seen you, since some of our viewers may not know what has happened. So I guess I'll recap, I'll do the honors."In October, you were on a Zoom call with your colleagues from headtopics.com
The New Yorkermagazine. Everyone took a break for several minutes, during which time you were caught masturbating on camera. You were subsequently fired from that job after 27 years of working there. And you since then have been on leave from CNN."Do I have all that right?"
Toobin:"You got it all right. Sad to say."Camerota:"OK, so let's start there. To quote Jay Leno, 'What the hell were you thinking?'"Toobin:"Well, obviously, I wasn't thinking very well or very much. And it was something that was inexplicable to me.
"I think one point, I wouldn't exactly say in my defense, because nothing is really in my defense, I didn't think I was on the call. I didn't think other people could see me."Camerota:"So you thought that you had turned off your camera?"
Toobin:"Correct, I thought that I had turned off the Zoom call. Now, that's not a defense. This was deeply moronic and indefensible. But I mean, that is part of this story."I have spent these seven subsequent months, miserable months in my life I can certainly confess, trying to be a better person. I'm in therapy, trying to do some public service, working in a food bank, which I certainly am going to continue to do, working on a new book about the Oklahoma City bombing, but I am trying to become the kind of person that people can trust again." headtopics.com
Camerota:"I'm sure you've replayed that embarrassing moment over and over many times. Have you ever thought about what it must have been like to be on the receiving end of that Zoom call?"Toobin:"Well, I haven't just thought about it. I spoken to several of my former colleagues at
TheNew Yorkerabout it. And they were shocked and appalled."I think they realize that this was not intended for them, that this was something that I would immediately regret, as I certainly did. And it was that day that I began apologizing. And that is something that I have tried to continue to do, both publicly and privately.
"We've covered a lot of political scandals. We've heard what I like to think of as the 'politician apology'—which is 'I'm sorry, if you were offended,' which always sounds to me like 'I've said the words now get off my back.'
"That's exactly what I've tried not to do. I'm trying now to say how sorry I am."Above all, I am sorry to my wife and to my family. But I'm also sorry to the people on the Zoom call, I'm sorry to my former colleagues atThe New Yorker headtopics.com
, I'm sorry to my current, fortunately still, colleagues at CNN, and I'm sorry to the people who read my work and watch me on CNN and who thought I was a better person. I got a lot to rebuild, but I feel very privileged and very lucky that I'm going to be able to try to do that."Read more: Newsweek »

Ya gotta hand it to him… Ol’jack is back!…everyone give him a hand jerk…CC He was masturbating. What is there to “SAY”? I can’t believe CNN brought him back and to have Alisyn Camerota interview him. Who was the fool who thought this was a good idea? I’m done with CNN.
Noted Zoom Masturbator Back on TVThat’s right, Jeffrey Toobin , who exposed himself to a handful of his colleagues during an election simulation, has returned to CNN And nobody can quite figure out why Jeff Zucker would overlook Toobin's public workplace masturbation. The unnamed network executive is Jeff Zucker. After Trump declared himself for president in 2015, Zucker’s CNN gave him a windfall of free airtime. The network often ran his rallies uninterrupted, despite Zucker’s past public statements about Trump’s dishonesty. MalteseFalcon5 michcusejac5

Jeffrey Toobin Returns To CNN After Exposing Himself On Zoom CallToobin exposed himself during a Zoom call at work last year, an incident he called “deeply moronic and indefensible” in an interview with CNN Thursday.

Anybody of color would've never gotten the second chance and they'd be cancelled everywhere.
