The editor of the New York Times, Carlos Tejada, died of a heart attack at the age of 49. In one 700 word long article about his life and his career the newspaper missed out on: he took his booster vaccination the day before his death.
Tejada was married and had two children. He worked for the Wall Street Journal for years before moving to the New York Times in 2016, the writes Journalist Alex Berensonwho worked for the newspaper himself Substack.
In July Tejada received the Corona vaccine from Janssen. He wrote on his Instagram pagethat he was grateful to have received the vaccination.
On December 16, he received a moderna “booster” in Seoul, South Korea. Berenson points out that mixing corona vaccines has never been tested for safety. In addition, Tejada did not give informed consent because the form was written in Korean, a language he did not understand. To be found here on Instagram.
A day later, the editor died of a heart attack, as his wife Nora announced on his Twitter page, which has since been deleted.
This is Carlos’s wife, Nora. It’s with deepest sorrow that I have to share with you that Carlos passed away last night of a heart attack. I’ve lost my best friend and our kids lost a truly great dad. I will be off social media for awhile.

“If that doesn’t wake the Times, I don’t know what else it will do,” said Berenson.
