Good catch. Someone (myself included) should have caught this. I have always thought that copy editors and fact checkers are essential to good journalism. Let's hope the Times hires more of them.

@JakeHalpern I truly appreciate your 2015 article in the New Yorker about Darren Wilson (yes, I just read it). Journalists are center stage of those inciting riots, but your analysis of perspectives should be the gold standard for seeking truth. There are many stories in a story.

After @JakeHalpern ’97 rowed with us and won a ton of races, he’s been an author, journalist, radio producer, Fulbright Scholar, and btw a Pulitzer Prize winner. NBD. Here’s his latest essay. Having spent some time in Tank A, he knows from dungeons.

BONUS: @JakeHalpern delves into an intriguing piece of the puzzle he didn't get into during Season 1 of #DeepCover... the source. Meet Tommy Powell, a former smuggler who guides us through his experience bringing loads of Colombian weed to the U.S.

Naji always believed that in America, he could escape the war that defined his childhood and just feel safe again. Did his family make the right choice? A story from @JakeHalpern and Michael Sloan’s graphic novel, “Welcome to the New World.” @HenryHolt

An amazing NPR story about a refugee boy, his father, and the dream of coming to America. Great job @Roughly for bringing the characters from my book to life. Love how this came out! Welcome To The New World
