Legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin quits CNN two years after Zoom incident

NEW YORK (AP) — Jeffrey Toobin, who joined CNN as a legal analyst after stepping down after exposing himself to colleagues on a Zoom call, said Friday he was leaving the network after 20 year.

Toobin announced the move in a tweet, saying he was happy to spend his last day on the air with his friends Wolf Blitzer, Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon.

“I love all my former colleagues,” he wrote.

Toobin was fired by The New Yorker magazine in 2020 after news broke that he was spotted masturbating during a Zoom call with magazine employees. Toobin said he didn’t realize his camera was on and apologized for the incident.

CNN brought it back on the air eight months after the incident.

Toobin had worked for CNN since 2002 and is the author of several books, including the most recent “True Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Investigation of Donald Trump”, published in August 2020. His 1996 book, “The Run of His Life: The People v. OJ Simpson,” was adapted into an FX series.
