New York Times Chief White House Correspondent Peter Baker tweeted: “RIP Betsy Rothstein, who delighted in puncturing the bloated egos of the press corps and lived life to its fullest.”
Mother Jones Editorial Director Ben Dreyfuss, the son of the famous actor Richard Dreyfuss, tweeted: “Omg. I had no idea Betsy was so sick. I DM’d her a few months ago to check in and see how she was and she didn’t betray even for a second what she was going through. This piece by Olivia is beautiful. Just incredibly sad. A lot of people who didn’t know her personally didn’t like Betsy, but she was really very sweet. Whenever I was going through stuff and publicly breaking down—which as you may know has happened all too often over the years—she was always the first one to reach out privately. RIP.”
White CNN White House Correspondent Kaitlan Collins tweeted: “Betsy was one of my favorite colleagues at the Daily Caller.

Yet death is no excuse to rewrite the facts of a person’s life. RIP to the woman who did a two part “investigation” of my race, stalked my mother’s Facebook page and published my parents’ home address. At least you had that. I never believed time would make her any less racist.”
