Exclusive: New York Times Writer, Board Member Adam Cohen Leaving Paper
This morning a Mediaite tipster with a good track record sent us word that The New York Times‘ Adam Cohen – an assistant page editor with a concentration in tech and legal affairs – has some rather significant differences with the editorial board and thus will be leaving the paper. Mediaite has now learned from a source close to Cohen that this is not quite the case.
The author, who before joining the NYT editorial board in 2002 had been working as a senior writer for Time, will be leaving his position at the paper later this year to teach for Yale College’s Media and Internet Law program, however there was no dispute between Cohen and the board, and that the writer’s departure was based on the Ivy League offer.
Andrew Rosenthal, editorial page editor and overseer of the Times‘ editorial board wrote to Mediaite:
Adam informed us a few weeks ago that he had accepted a teaching position at Yale law school. It was entirely his decision.
