New York (CNN Business)Jeffrey Toobin, CNN's longtime chief legal analyst, has returned to the network eight months after he exposed himself during a Zoom call with New Yorker colleagues.
On Thursday afternoon Toobin was interviewed about that incident, and about recent legal news, by anchor Alisyn Camerota on "CNN Newsroom. "
Toobin said his conduct "was deeply moronic and indefensible. "
In the interview, Toobin expressed apologies to his wife and family, to the people who were on the Zoom call that day, and to his colleagues.
Toobin said he has spent his "miserable months" off-air "trying to be a better person. "
"I am trying to become the kind of person that people can trust again," he said.
Going forward, Toobin will be back on CNN regularly in his chief legal analyst role, a spokesman confirmed.
People familiar with the matter said that Toobin exposed himself when he began masturbating during the Zoom, apparently as part of a different video call.
