New York Times national political reporter Adam Nagourney discusses his new unauthorized history of The Grey Lady over the past four decades and the pursuit of truth in our turbulent times.
Adam Nagourney joined the Times in 1996, was appointed chief national political correspondent in 2002 and became the Los Angeles bureau chief in 2010. He took a leave of absence in 2018 to write an unauthorized history of The New York Times, from the final years of Arthur Sulzberger’s reign as publisher to the election of Donald Trump in November 2016.
His book “The Times: How the Newspaper of Record Survived Scandal, Scorn, and the Transformation of Journalism” just came out and is available now in bookstores.
