A Washington Post reporter covering race in America is on leave for speaking at a private liberal event.
On Thursday, reports say Janell Ross is no longer with the paper.
This comes two months after it was revealed she spoke at a gathering in California for left-wing lawmakers and activists, including billionaire George Soros.
She reportedly spoke on “getting the economic narrative right” while at the event.
It’s unclear when she was first put on leave, but sources say it’s unlikely she’ll come back.
The Washington Post cited their policy against journalists participating in partisan events.
