Everyone took a break for several minutes during which time you were caught masturbating on camera.

'I think they realized that this was not intended for them.

"I don't think that one awful mistake should define a person or ruin their employment opportunities for life", the executive said, noting that Toobin had already been humiliated and mocked for a "wildly embarrassing" but "unintentional" mistake.

Toobin said he thought the New Yorker's firing of him was an "excessive punishment" and expressed gratitude that CNN is giving him a second chance.

After a months-long absence, Jeffrey Toobin is back on CNN, as of June 10, 2021.

He noted that he thought he had turned off his camera and said, "I didn't think I was on the call".

Toobin said he has spoken with and apologized to his former colleagues at the New Yorker who witnessed the incident. On Oct. 19, Toobin exposed his genitals during a virtual meeting with staffers from the New Yorker and WNYC radio in preparation for 2020 election coverage.

He said he's been in therapy, apologized personally to those he let down and has been doing community service at a food bank.

The lawyer, who is also a CNN analyst, was only suspended by the cable network at the time. I am trying to become the kind of person that people can trust again.

"I've got a lot to rebuild", he said. "Because I'm a flawed human being who makes mistakes". The only issue is what should be the consequences, and the New Yorker made one decision about the consequences.

'The New Yorker made one decision about the consequences, CNN made a different decision. I am not going to come up here and try to split hairs and try to come up with justifications. I have spent the seven subsequent months, miserable months in my life, I can certainly confess, trying to be a better person.

"I am writing to share with you that our investigation regarding Jeffrey Toobin is complete, and as a result, he is no longer affiliated with our company", read a memo from Stan Duncan, chief people officer at Condé Nast.

"To quote Jay Leno 'what the hell were you thinking?'" Camerota asked, using a famous line by the late-night host when he interviewed actor Hugh Grant after being caught with a prostitute. Hard times at CNN'.

When Camerota pressed about why Toobin didn't show better judgment during the call, he replied, "Because I didn't have better judgment".

He has been a CNN contributor since 2002.

Toobin's book on the O. J. Simpson murder case served as the source material for FX's limited series The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story, which won nine Primetime Emmys in 2016.

Prior to joining the New Yorker, Toobin had worked as an Assistant United States Attorney in Brooklyn and is a Harvard graduate.
