I’m a journalist, editor and writer with a background in library science. I currently serve as Editor-in-Chief 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 PolitiFact team that won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for our fact-checking of the 2008 presidential election, and I have extensive experience covering the presidency and Congress. 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’ve appeared 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.
