Leora Falk is a second-year public policy student at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
She has a B.A. from Barnard College, where she spent inordinate amounts of time working as a city reporter and deputy news editor at the Columbia Daily Spectator.
In between college and graduate school she spent three and a half years covering climate change for BNA Daily Environment Report and World Climate Change Report in Washington D.C.
Last summer, she took that climate knowledge in a different direction, interning at the Department of State.
She has worked as a reporting intern for the now-defunct New York Sun, the Washington bureau of The Chicago Tribune, and the Jerusalem Post. Her work has also appeared in the New York Times and the L.A. Times.
This started as a blog devoted to the reading assignments for the John F. Kennedy School of Government Fall 2011 class, Media, Politics, and Power. I am still trying to figure out exactly what it will be next. (The first post that was written after the class ended is “The Journalist and the Activist”).
