While responding to a tweet from the New York Times‘ Jonathan Martin about the rise of the Internet/cable television and how it factors into political polarization, Pfeiffer wrote:

MSM focused on the the word “n*igger” when in fact the actual slip was the word “right.” Pfeiffer meant to type “left.”
