Veteran WaPo Reporter to POGO

Veteran WaPo reporter David Hilzenrath, an award-winning journalist whose work includes coverage of financial fraud and the fed’s efforts to reform Wall Street and health care, is joining the Project On Government Oversight (POGO) to lead the organization’s investigations into government corruption, waste and abuse.

Hilzenrath started his career at WaPo as an intern in 1987 after graduating from Harvard.  He will be POGO’s editor-in-chief. His work at the Post has highlighted weaknesses in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s policing of Wall Street and shown how former Pentagon officials have used the revolving door for personal gain. He was also part of the team that covered the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010.

Snoozer press release quote: “David’s top-notch investigative skills, passion for holding government accountable and deep knowledge of how this city operates will help take us to the next level,” POGO Executive Director Danielle Brian said. “We’re thrilled he’s coming to POGO.”

Congrats to Hilzenrath!
