CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin returned to the cable news network Thursday, several months after being caught masturbating during a Zoom call with his former New Yorker staff members.
“This was deeply moronic and indefensible.”

A transcript is as follows:
ALISYN CAMEROTA: In October, you were on a Zoom call with your colleagues from the New Yorker magazine. 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?
JEFFREY TOOBIN: You got it all right, sad to say.
