A former journalist, journalism professor and media critic, I founded Grade the News in my spare bedroom in 2000. My most recent book compresses what I learned grading news into a short book with the recondite academic title: Detecting Bull: How to Identify Bias and Junk Journalism in Print, Broadcast and on the Wild Web.
