NY Times and all credible reporters identify themselves by name; hang up on those who refuse

I received a call from a woman who claims she got a call from the New York Times.  She claimed the ‘reporter’ wanted to talk to her about a story she was going to write about me.

When the person asked the name of the “Times” reporter, she refused to identify herself.  The woman who received the call, hung up the phone.

The call might be unrelated to Keith Raniere, but I am known as one of his most vocal critics.

As an advisory: All reporters from the New York Times [or any legitimate media outlet] will absolutely identify themselves by name. If you have any doubts if they are legit, they will help you establish who they are.

Anyone who claims they are a reporter from the Times, or any other legitimate media, who will not identify themselves is a fraud. There is no if, and, or but about that.

Legitimate reporters identify themselves without exception. When something is on the record, that record includes the writer of the record.

This recent “New York Times” call may or may not be significant. However, a few years ago, Toni Natalie received emails, purportedly from a Mexican journalist named Yureria Sierra, inviting her to come to Mexico to be interviewed for a story about Keith Raniere.

Miss Natalie asked in her reply email to do the interview over the phone, but the person claiming to be Ms. Sierra declined, and offered to fly Miss Natalie to Mexico. Miss Natalie was suspicious and declined.

Later, Kristin Keeffe, the former Legal Liaison for NXIVM, revealed in court filings that the Mexican journalist’s request for an in person interview in Mexico was a ploy to lure Miss Natalie, and other women who were ‘enemies’ of Keith Raniere, to Mexico, where they could be imprisoned on false charges.

They were enemies of Keith Raniere mainly because they spoke out about him publicly.

The upshot of this is that if anyone calls you claiming to be a journalist, make sure you identify who you are talking to and, of course, do not take any free tickets to Mexico.

With Keith Raniere and his NXIVM group, we are dealing with a criminal organization that has been entirely above the law. for years.

That may change.

The use of fake callers pretending to be legitimate reporters may be part of a criminal scheme meant to intimidate people from speaking out. This is Keith Raniere’s method: To suppress free speech and punish those who dare to tell the truth about him.

Reporters at the New York Times identify themselves when calling on the phone.

It’s most likely NXIVM creeps playing their games.

Take down the incoming number (no reporter is going to call you on a blocked number) and make a report to the police (there is a criminal detective assigned to this NXIVM and his name and number is posted on this blog) if you find its a fake call.

Even burner phones can now be traced since terrorist have been buying them and using them. NXIVM is stupid enough to not know this and use them.

If you worried it might not be a reporter than get their name and tell them you will look them up on their website and call them from the company posted on their website. If they don’t have a number on their website, tell them you will call the general line on the website and ask the reporter to have the desk patch you through to them at their desk.

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
