A stranger to the world of glossy New York magazines, she had spent the past four years as a junior reporter at a news start-up in Washington, scrapping for incremental scoops and gritty campaign-bus assignments alongside scores of other young D.C. journalism strivers.Yet in her short career, McCammond had...

A star reporter’s resignation, a racial slur and a newsroom divided: Inside the fallout at the New York Times
