The truth is out there… it’s just often hiding behind an agenda, or twisting in someone’s preconceived notions. The practice of investigative journalism is the pursuit of facts and the stories they tell. After 25 years of reporting for mainstream press (including Time magazine, the LA Weekly, Denver Post and Reuters), I’m joining Substack writers like Glenn Greenwald and Matt Taibbi who strive for neutrality and are willing to defy partisan pigeonholes.
