Kevin Deutsch Biography

Kevin Deutsch is one of the most popular and richest Celebrity who was born on May 9, 1981 in Brooklyn, New York, United States.

In response, Deutsch issued a statement on his website stating: “For me, journalistic ethics are sacrosanct. They’ve remained so throughout my fifteen-year criminal justice journalism career—a career I’m extremely proud of. I stand behind every word I’ve published. None of my work has been found to be inaccurate, nor any story I’ve worked on ever retracted. Newsday’s review confirmed the accuracy of the more than 630 stories I wrote for the paper-stories Newsday is standing behind.” Deutsch has also suggested that his competitors are simply jealous of his work.

In response, editors and reporters at The Times conducted a detailed review of the fentanyl article. The main facts and thrust of the article, including the official data and quotes from the authorities, were confirmed. However, after extensive reporting efforts, The Times also has been unable to locate or confirm the existence of two people who were named and quoted: Jeffrey Sheridan, described as a resident of Oyster Bay, N.Y., who works as an addiction counselor and whose 34-year-old nephew died from a fentanyl overdose on Staten Island in 2015; and Andrew Giordano, described as a 26-year-old resident of Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, who overdosed on a fentanyl-heroin mixture.

On July 12, 2017, Newsday, where Deutsch was on staff for more than four years, released the conclusions of its review of Deutsch’s writing there. Newsday said that review was prompted by the Baltimore article questioning Deutsch’s second book. Newsday found that in 77 or more than 600 articles written by Deutsch, 109 individuals he quoted could not have their existence confirmed. The editors said the main points of the articles were confirmed and cited many reasons that people might not give a real name to a police reporter. No corrections were issued, but Newsday appended individual editor’s notes to each of the 77 articles online, detailing which sources it could not locate after approximately four months of effort.

Deutsch “was never formally accused by any major news organization of fabricating sources,” but some journalists made allegations of fabrication following the release of Deutsch’s second book, Pill City. Shortly after the book’s release, reporters from The Baltimore Sun and Baltimore City Paper, challenged the veracity of the book’s narrative. On February 10, 2017, The Baltimore Sun published an article quoting government officials that cast doubt on the book, and Deutsch’s practice of changing the names of individuals and places he documented. Core elements of the book could not be substantiated, including “the dates, circumstances and victims involved in homicides Deutsch describes in detail.” The City Paper was not able to confirm the existence of almost any person described in the book, including incidental characters not involved in crime who would have no reason to fear exposure. Despite a detailed explanation of events in the Shock Trauma department at the University of Maryland Medical Center, no record exists of Deutsch visiting it. Of the murders described in the book, several did not appear to match any of Baltimore area’s recorded murders during the year-long time period. The City Paper, despite inquiring with both the police and other experts on the Baltimore underworld, was unable to verify the existence of characters who might possibly have been analogues for “old-school drug kingpin Jimmy Masters” nor a “nationally famous” Reverend Grier, despite a detailed description of a high-profile and well-attended funeral for Grier in the book.

Kevin Deutsch is an American criminal justice journalist, author of two books, and host of the crime podcast “A Dark Turn” on the Authors on the Air Global Radio Network. He is currently a staff writer for the criminal justice nonprofit Bronx Justice News. The sourcing and veracity of some of his news articles and his book Pill City became the subject of a high-profile dispute in 2017 involving allegations made by members of the media that Deutsch fabricated sources. Deutsch denied all of the claims and defended his work as accurate, as did his publisher, St. Martins Press. Deutsch was never formally accused by any major news organization of fabricating sources.Pill City is an account of how two teens used opioids looted during the 2015 Baltimore riots to sell drugs using an Uber-like app and founded a nationwide criminal syndicate.

Following these findings, on March 2, 2017, the media watchdog group iMediaEthics confirmed that the New York Daily News was conducting an internal review, examining all 572 stories from Deutsch’s career with the company. The group later shared a statement from Newsweek, confirming that it would review the three stories Deutsch had written there as well. The New York Daily News review was less extensive than the Newsday review and noted the impossibility of verifying five-to-seven year old stories that were often written under multiple bylines after staff turnover, but did not find any obvious “red flags” in its review. Deutsch has stood by all of his reporting, stating that he used the exact names given to him by his interviewees.

Several weeks earlier, The Baltimore Sun had published a report that raised questions about claims in a new book by the reporter about the drug trade in Baltimore. The Sun reporters had informed The Times that, in the course of researching the claims in Mr. Deutsch’s book, they had reviewed the Times article and had been unable to locate two sources quoted by name in that article. The main facts of the article were upheld, and the story was not retracted.

Rolling Stone updated its story about Deutsch with a clarification in August 2018, stating that “This story has been changed to clarify that Deutsch was never formally accused by any major news organization of fabricating sources. It was also updated to include a comment from Deutsch.” That comment read: “Despite the false and baseless accusations made by a handful of competing journalists who targeted some of my work, including the author of this very piece, none of the more than 1,500 news articles, briefs, features, or books I’ve published in my 16-year crime reporting career has ever been retracted, nor a single factual correction or clarification issued, as a result of these attacks.”
