Kurt Eichenwald, who claims to be a contributing editor at Vanity Fair, sent a series of emails calling Parkland shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv “desperate” and “in need of psychiatric help.”
Hell of a way to find out. I have been a contributing editor – contracted freelancer – with Vanity Fair for 6 years. I live in Dallas & have not been in contact with the new editor in charge. My contract expired and was not renewed. Called my friends there – all of them gone too.

In an email, which Eichenwald sent Tuesday to Daily Wire Editor-In-Chief Ben Shapiro, Eichenwald claimed to be writing an article about Shapiro’s professional relationship with Kashuv.
Eichenwald accused Kashuv of “working to trick journalists,” “coordinating” with “trolls,” and then claimed he had contacted a psychiatrist to ask for an evaluation of Kashuv’s mental health.
