NYTimes Peru N-Word, Part One: Introduction
1 mar. 2021 - On February 5 this year, one week after an article about me appeared in the Daily Beast, The New York Times announced that I would be leaving. At my departure, I was the paper’s lead reporter on the Covid-19 pandemic. I had been at the Times since starting as a copy boy in 1976. Since the Daily Beast wrote to the Times on Jan. 28 saying it intended to publish a story, I have not spoken in detail to any reporter. On the advice of my lawyer, I waited until my departure date, March 1, 2021. March 1 having arrived, I will now tell my side of the story, in four parts: This Introduction, What Happened on January 28?, What Happened During the Investigation?, What Happened in Peru?
