A. G. Sulzberger?

Spotlight - - NEWS AND VIEWS -

In Jan­uary 2018, A. G. Sulzberger be­came the pub­lisher of The New York Times. He is a mem­ber of the fam­ily that bought the news­pa­per in 1896, and the sixth mem­ber of his fam­ily to be­come its pub­lisher. The New York Times, with 3.5 mil­lion sub­scribers, is read by more peo­ple than any other US daily news­pa­per.

Sulzberger, 38, did not plan a ca­reer in jour­nal­ism. It was in 2004, while he was at univer­sity, that a pro­fes­sor con­vinced him to work as a re­porter for a news­pa­per. In 2009, he joined The New York Times, and later he took over the job of pub­lisher from his father.

In July 2018, Pres­i­dent Trump in­vited Sulzberger to the White House. Af­ter­wards, Trump tweeted that they had dis­cussed fake news. Sulzberger said he had wanted to “raise con­cerns about the pres­i­dent’s deeply trou­bling anti-press rhetoric.” The NYT and Trump have been in dis­agree­ment be­fore, and it seems as if the bat­tle of words will con­tinue.
