Charles Ortleb, the publisher and editor-in-chief of New York Native, discusses a recent column on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome by Jane E. Brody in The New York Times. He also discusses the reporting he published by Neenyah Ostrom in New York Native on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome three decades earlier. Not only did The New York Times ignore Ortleb's dedication to covering Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic, but the paper also mocked Ortleb when his paper went out of business in 1997 after a coordinated boycott by the AIDS activist group Act Up. Ortleb's account of his newspaper's attempt to bring the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic to the public's attention can be found in his book The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up which is available at Amazon
