Report: New York Times' Farhad Manjoo Falsely Claimed to Spend Two Months 'Offline'

“Manjoo wrote about what he learned from his two months away from social media, and dispensed avuncular advice to his readers about the benefits of slowing down one’s news consumption,” reported the Columbia Journalism Review last week.

On The Media, however, removed an interview with Manjoo in which he talked about unplugging from social media, issuing an editor’s note in its place.
