Victor Navasky, an award-winning author and journalist who presided over the liberal US weekly the Nation and wrote influential books on the anti-communist blacklist and the justice department under Robert F Kennedy, has died. He was 90.

Navasky’s death was confirmed to the Associated Press by a spokesperson at the Nation. Its publisher, Katrina vanden Heuvel, said Navasky changed her life and thousands of others.

“Victor was a true believer in the power of independent media – quietly fierce in his convictions, kind and generous to so very many,” Vanden Heuvel wrote.
