Welcome to!


I've been researching and investigating online rumors, fake news and mis/disinformation, and media manipulation for more than a decade. I joined ProPublica, a nonprofit investigative newsroom, to continue my coverage of these topics. I was previously the media editor of BuzzFeed News. You can read some of my notable and award-winning work here, and check out the books I've written and edited.


I love to deliver informative, entertaining talks and in-depth workshops about fake news, online misinformation, and how to navigate and investigate our complicated media environment. Learn more here.

I also write a free email newsletter called Digital Investigations that offers tips, tools, and other information about digging into digital content and systems and OSINT. Subscribe here!
