Even the writer of the NYT’s profile of a white supremacist seems to think it was a swing and a miss

The print version will arrive Sunday, but online readers of the New York Times were able to read writer Richard Fausset’s profile of a white nationalist living in New Carlise, Ohio, a day early. As Twitchy reported Friday, a New York Times profile of conservative Ben Shapiro — whom some laughably consider “alt-right” — was enough to convince Debra Messing to allegedly cancel her subscription, so what reaction would Times readers have to an actual, self-declared Nazi sympathizer profiled in its pages? The reception was not good, overall.

Comic Michael Ian Black wasn’t necessarily contrary at all: why not profile white nationalists, especially if they seem more pathetic than powerful in the telling?
