ProPublica has added Justin Elliott to its team as an Investigative Reporter. Elliott comes to ProPublica from Salon, where he worked as a reporter covering all aspects of politics, from lobbying to campaign finances.
“Justin excels at the kind of hard-hitting and quick-paced journalism that’s a great fit for ProPublica,” said ProPublica senior editor Eric Umansky. “He’s a natural investigative reporter — and one who sees beyond the often-cited but false dichotomy between aggregation versus original reporting. Justin has done great work at Salon and elsewhere, and I’m thrilled he’s joining us.”
