Welcome!

 

I've been researching and reporting on online rumors, fake news and mis/disinformation, and media manipulation for more than a decade. I recently joined ProPublica, a nonprofit investigative newsroom, as a reporter 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 also love to deliver informative, entertaining talks about fake news, online misinformation, and how to navigate our complicated media environment. Learn more here.
