A 28 year veteran of The New York Times slammed the paper on Wednesday for not correcting “deeply flawed articles” on the Russian collusion conspiracy and its “1619 Project.”
RealClearInvestigations editor Tom Kuntz, who left the Times in 2016 after nearly three decades at the paper as a reporter and editor, detailed significant gaps and misleading reports throughout the Times’ coverage of supposed Trump campaign collusion with Russian agents during the 2016 election. The veteran journalist also brought up significant, if not disqualifying, challenges to The New York Times’ effort to redefine the founding of the United States as the beginning of slavery in America.
The RealClearInvestigations editor left The New York Times in 2016 to lead the nonprofit news organization American Media Institute. Kunts left the paper because “I was at a point in my career at the Times when I was clearly not going to be running the place … I figured this was a good opportunity. So I made the move,” he told the Observer in 2016.
