Newsweek Staffers Threaten to Resign, Claiming Company Tried to Silence Investigation of Owners
On Tuesday evening, Newsweek published a story about previously unreported ties between Newsweek Media Group (which also owns International Business Times) and Olivet University’s efforts to develop a campus in upstate New York. Olivet, which is affiliated with a mysterious religious sect called “The Community,” has numerous connections to former leaders of NMG.

But not before several reporters and editors made it clear to management that they would quit if Newsweek did not publish the story.

The team of journalists including Newsweek deputy editor Ross Schneiderman, news director Cristina Silva, politics editor Michael J. Mishak, and IBT reporters Josh Keefe and Josh Saul mulled resigning in protest on Tuesday if the article was not published.

“Newsweek Media Group has made it clear it will not allow us to publish a credible, independent story about the company’s financial ties to Olivet University—even though our reporting shows the Manhattan District Attorney’s office is scrutinizing those ties as part of a long-term fraud probe,” the protesting journalists said in a letter drafted—but never sent—to management, reviewed by The Daily Beast. “For this reason, we are immediately resigning from the company.”
