Felicia Sonmez Career
Felicia started her work right after graduating. She started her profession as an English teacher in Beijing. She has also written for the National Journal’s Asahi Shimbun and The Hotline on American politics. She filed a complaint against the newspaper and some of its top executives. However, the lawsuit was recently dropped. She is a political reporter in Washington, DC, covering the latest news from Congress, the White House, and the campaign trail. Before her current position as a political reporter, she worked for more than four years, first as a correspondent for Agence France-Presse in Beijing and then as an editor for The Wall Street Journal’s China Real Time Report. She covered national politics for The Washington Post from 2010 to 2013, starting as a writer for The Fix, covering Congress, the 2012 presidential campaign, and also President Barack Obama’s first two years in office.
Felicia sent a link to a 2016 The Daily Beast piece titled “Kobe Bryant’s Disturbing Rape Case” on January 26, 2020, just hours after Kobe Bryant’s death. Sonmez said “10,000 individuals” responded and “emailed me insults and death threats” after her now-deleted tweet sparked controversy. “Well THAT was an eye opener,” she said of the deluge of hate mail, stressing that she had nothing to do with the story she tweeted, as shown by screenshots of the letters. “Every public character is worthy of being remembered in its entirety,” she said, “even if that public figure is cherished and that totality terrifying.” She posted another tweet outlining some of the harassment, one of which includes a screenshot of an email she received at work, underlining the hate she received. The political writer was “placed on administrative leave,” according to Washington Post editor-in-chief Tracy Grant, as the paper investigated whether her tweets by Bryant “violated The Post editors’ social media policy.” In July 2021, Sonmez made headlines again when she filed a lawsuit against The Washington Post, alleging that the newspaper discriminated against her by refusing to allow her to cover sexual assault after coming forward as a victim. The case was thrown out.
