Why Is the New York Times Reporting on an Islamic Terrorist’s Plan to ‘Kill’ Journalists?

By ROBERT KLEIN, Associated PressNew York Times reporter Andrew Rosenberg has the latest on a potential Islamic terror attack targeting reporters in New York City.

Rosenberg, the Times’ chief foreign affairs correspondent, reports that a man identified as Farah Khan told a New York police officer that he planned to “kill journalists.”

Khan told the officer that, in addition to the New Jersey attack, he planned a New Jersey assault, which is the most deadly of its kind.

The suspect has not been named, but authorities say they are investigating.

The Times has not confirmed Khan’s claims.

Khan said he was motivated by the threat of a New Orleans-style “death march” on the city by Islamic extremists.

A New Orleans police officer, who declined to be identified, told the AP he was aware of the possibility of a plot in the city, but declined to comment further.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, has said he is looking into Khan’s account and is concerned about the potential threat to journalists.

The Times has been criticized for not including Khan’s information when reporting on an attack in Minnesota on Sept. 17, in which three people were killed and more than 30 others wounded in a mosque.

It said the attack occurred in the aftermath of a mass shooting in an Orlando, Fla., nightclub, and that a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation said that police did not think the attack was linked to the attack in New Jersey.

The official said police did find some items that appeared to support Khan’s claim, but that there were other elements that were not immediately clear.

Khalim Khan, a 26-year-old from New Jersey, was shot dead by police in the subway in New Brunswick, N.J., on Aug. 29.

He was hired to cover the Muslim world in late April.

He joined the paper in October, the most recent being in February.

Kamal Khan, the father of Farah, told ABC News that his son had been “very brave” for reporting on the New Orleans attack and was now “a hero.”

“He had no idea how he was going to get out of here alive,” Kamal Khan said.

“He was very brave.

He had no clue.

He knew it was going down.

He wanted to die.”

New Detroit Times, Detroit newspaper boy hat goes on sale

Detroit, Mich.

— The New Detroit News has been on a roll.

Last week, the newspaper was named the best new business news publication in the nation by the Associated Press and has been named to the best business news business publication in America by Business Insider.

The company is also the latest Detroit business to tap into the growing trend of millennials and has also gained popularity with the local sports fan base.

New Detroit News publisher and publisher Mike Siegel says it’s been an easy transition.

“I’m really proud of it.

I think it’s a testament to our community,” he said.

Siegel said his goal is to give the paper the type of exposure it deserves as the leader of the city’s sports community.

“We’re very fortunate to be a part of that community.

I’m very proud of that,” he added.

The newspaper also is hoping to build on its recent success.

Its new cover features a large photo of Detroiters at a soccer game and features the newspaper’s logo.

According to Siegel, the new cover is part of a broader strategy to expand the newspaper in order to increase readership.

“I don’t think the New Detroit newspaper is going to have the impact it did in the past because of our focus on sports and our focus to be part of the community and not just in the media space,” he told News 2.
