‘Breakdown’ S03, Ep. 2: Allegations dogged doctor for decades, went unheeded


It was supposed to be an easy appointment for LaToya Kelly, just to learn the results of her echocardiogram from Dr. Narendra K. Gupta. Instead, she says Gupta groped her during an unnecessary breast exam, and seemed to enjoy it.  

She had no way of knowing that more than a decade earlier, Dr. Gupta had lost privileges at two Ohio hospitals over allegations of attacking and harassing nurses. Instead of reporting him to police, the medical community shielded him.  

Season 3 of the AJC’s exclusive Breakdown podcast, “Predator, M.D.,” follows the fortunes of Dr. Gupta and many of the 18 women who claim the doctor abused them.  

In Episode 2, Johnny Edwards, one of the reporters behind the AJC’s award-winning Doctors & Sex Abuse series, explores the earliest allegations against Gupta during his time working in Canada, and what happened when those red flags weren’t heeded before he got hired in Ohio.

Opinion: How to restore American self-reliance

WASHINGTON — When in the Senate chamber, Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican, sits by choice at the desk used by the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan. New York’s scholar-senator would have recognized that Sasse has published a book of political philosophy in the form of a guide to parenting. Moynihan understood that politics is downstream from...
Opinion: The futile act of pouring water on concrete

I call it pouring water on concrete. You make a splash, but nothing sinks in. That’s what it has felt like lately arguing via tweet and email with supporters of President Dumpster Fire who insist there is “no evidence” he did anything to merit the investigations and talk of impeachment he now faces. It is, of course, an astounding...
Collins: Trump Can’t Add Things

We’re now getting a feel for what it was like to work in a business run by Donald Trump. His budget is out, and it predicts we will have super-duper, excellent, great — no, huge — economic growth based on monster tax cuts for the rich and cuts in spending that will leave the poor with no money to buy anything. It was produced in concert...
Krauthammer: Why Middle East peace starts in Saudi Arabia

“Whom the gods would destroy, they first tempt to resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict.” — Irving Kristol The quixotic American pursuit of Middle East peace is a perennial. It invariably fails, yet every administration feels compelled to give it a try. The Trump administration is no different. It will fail as well. To be sure, no great...
