Deborah Needleman Biography
Deborah Needleman is an American editor and writer. She was editor-in-chief of T: The New York Times Style Magazine from September 2012 to December 2016. Prior to that she was editor-in-chief of WSJ., and the creator of the paper's weekend lifestyle section and before that, the founding editor-in-chief of domino.
Early lifeNeedleman grew up in Cherry Hill, New Jersey and graduated from George Washington University where she studied philosophy and art history.
CareerNeedleman worked as a photographer's assistant for a freelance photographer before becoming the photo editor at The Washington Post Sunday magazine. She wrote about gardens and design for The New York Times, Slate, and House & Garden, where she was editor-at-large, before becoming a magazine editor.
T MagazineDeborah Needleman was named editor of T: The New York Times Style Magazine in September 2012. The first issue of T under Deborah Needleman in March 2013 featured Lee Radziwill on the cover, for which she and Sofia Coppola produced a short film. As part of the 10th Anniversary issue of T in October 2014, the magazine ran 10 different covers and the website looked back on some of T's most memorable covers. In October 2015, Needleman was sharply criticized by T Magazine readers and then-New York Times Public Editor Margaret Sullivan for conflicts of interest created by Needleman's decision to assign Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen—wife of billionaire Marc Andreessen—a feature that appeared in the Oct. 12, 2015 issue of T titled "Five Visionary Tech Entrepreneurs Who Are Changing the World" without any disclosure that Arrillaga-Andreessen was "not only married to a major player in the tech world, but one who is a major investor in one of the companies she featured." Needleman, when asked to respond to the controversy by Sullivan, replied that she "agree[d] that we should have had a disclosure, and it was my mistake in not asking her if there were any potential conflicts. This was an oversight on my part." Needleman's rationale for not perceiving the conflicts as controversial was that Arrillaga-Andreessen is extraordinarily wealthy: "[S]he is, separately from her husband, a billionaire (making her through marriage a billionaire twice over) and for that reason I think I failed to consider any monetary conflict in her case." Media critics observed that upon closer examination, four of the five profiles Arrillaga-Andreessen had written for the issue were "poisoned by conflicts of interest."Needleman and T Magazine were also sharply criticized by Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple for having "disappeared tech entrepreneur Elizabeth Holmes" from the Oct. 12, 2015 feature on tech visionaries after the Wall Street Journal reported that Holmes and Theranos—the blood testing company Holmes founded and was then chief executive of—appeared to be misleading consumers and investors as to the effectiveness of technology the company had claimed to pioneer.
