I’m a journalist, editor and writer with a background in library science. I currently serve as director of the International Fact-Checking Network, an organization that empowers fact-checkers around the world. Before that, I was editor-in-chief of PolitiFact, the U.S. politics fact-checking website, and I was a reporter on the PolitiFact team that won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for our fact-checking of the 2008 presidential election. I hold dual master’s degrees in journalism and library & information science, and I have taught as an adjunct instructor at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. I’ve appeared on national television and radio shows (CNN, PBS Newshour, NPR, etc.) to discuss fact-checking and information integrity. My public speaking includes presentations at universities, libraries and conferences. I was a 2023 Nieman fellow at Harvard University where I studied the intersection of journalism and democracy.
