Juan M. Thompson is a former journalist (usually around race issues) for the Intercept who got fired for "fabricated several quotes in his stories" and creating fake email accounts that he used to impersonate others. The Intercept had to offer lengthy corrections to five stories and retract a sixth. Reed apologized to readers and to those misquoted. A year after Juan exited The Intercept he was convicted for cyberstalking and making several bomb threats to Jewish Community Centers in the U.S.
