Talia Levin, who used to work as a journalist at The New Yorker magazine, will be teaching a journalism course at New York University’s journalism school. Levin worked as a fact-checker and resigned when she falsely claimed an agent for Immigration, Customs and Enforcement (ICE) had a Nazi tattoo. The agency criticized Levin for the manufactured and erroneous allegation, to which she played victim.

Now, NYU journalism students will hear her opinions about the far-right.
