History[edit]

The New York Times was first printed in 1851.

A science reporter for the NYT, William L. Laurence, was the only journalist to witness bombing of Nagasaki. He wrote the official history of the A-Bomb project.

The NYT ran a series of exposes in 1871 on the corrupt Tweed Ring, which ends its domination of New York City Hall.

In 1971, the NYT Pulitzer Prize winning stories by Sydney H. Schanberg and Dith Pran about Cambodia falling to the Khmere Rouge regime was the basis of the Oscar-nominated film, "The Killing Fields."

Also in 1971, the NYT published a series of excerpts from the U.S. government's classified history of the Viet Nam War. The Nixon Administration went to court to block the publication, which the Washington Post had begun publishing. The NYT won the case at the Supreme Court in a 6-3 ruling, which allowed the series to continue to be published.

More than a dozen men were exonerated in 2013 after a NYT investigation led to the review of 50 Brooklyn murder cases.

The NYT in 2017 exposed the secret histories of prominent men across industries who were accused of sexual harassment and misconduct towards women ranging from actresses to factory workers. The articles won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service and set off the #MeToo movement.

The NYT created The 1619 Project in 2019 to mark the anniversary of the first ship carrying enslaved Africans arriving in what would become the United States.

In 2020, the New York Times created a consistently updated stream of information about Covid1-9, involving more than 1100 journalists.[2]
