Jack Newfield: R.I.P.

Jack Newfield has died at 66 of cancer. He was an inspiration to journalists and he relentlessly exposed injustices.

A veteran of the Daily News, Post, and Sun, Newfield's reputation is anchored in the 24 years he spent here at The Village Voice, chronicling the sins of New York's powerful—judges, elected officials, landlords, boxing promoters, party hacks, developers—and the valor of some of the city's lesser-known residents.
