Dear NY Times Public Editor Arthur S. Brisbane:
Guest writers like Robert Bryce mislead the public by offering expert opinion under innocuous titles like “Senior Fellow.” But often, guest writers like Mr. Bryce, and his employer the Manhattan Institute, receive millions of dollars from industries like fossil fuels to fund their work.
While I believe that all voices should be heard, the New York Times can end this confusion and ensure better transparency.
I’m asking that you have guest contributors disclose their true ties to the industries and issues they write about.
As I form my opinion on issues that matter to me, I believe that everyone has the right be heard; I just want to know the true ties funding their speech.
