He currently covers breaking news.[3] He was featured in the film Page One: Inside the New York Times.

Criticism

A 2012 news story by Pérez-Peña on Yale University quarterback, Patrick Witt, was criticized by Witt and some journalists for unfairness and poor sourcing.[4][5][6] While Pérez-Peña defended the accuracy of the story,[7] the Public Editor of the Times raised concerns about the article, particularly its reporting a sexual assault claim based on anonymous sourcing.[8]

Pérez-Peña was born in Santiago, Cuba and raised in Southern California. He studied European History at Pomona College.[9] In 1987, Pérez-Peña appeared on Jeopardy! and became a 5-time champion, later appearing in the show's first reunion invitational, Super Jeopardy! in 1990. In 2005, he was asked to participate in the show's Ultimate Tournament of Champions but ended up not appearing in the tournament.[]
