About Me

I’m a journalist, editor and writer with extensive experience covering the presidency, Congress and federal elections. I currently serve as Editor of PolitiFact, the national politics fact-checking website that plays a leading role in journalism’s fact-checking movement. I was a reporter on the team that won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for our fact-checking of the 2008 election. I hold dual master’s degrees in journalism and library & information science, and I have university-level teaching experience as an adjunct journalism instructor. I regularly appear on national television and radio shows (CNN, PBS Newshour, NPR, etc.) to discuss fact-checking. My public speaking includes presentations at universities, libraries and conferences. Read more about my professional background.
