Brooke Binkowski

Brooke Binkowski is an award-winning veteran journalist who is accustomed to improbable situations. Her interests have taken her all over the world, from Alaska to Gibraltar and beyond; her most recent work involved taking on -- and defeating -- multiple global disinformation narratives and their worst purveyors. Before that, she worked for years as a humanitarian and post-conflict reporter at the U.S.-Mexico border, and as a breaking-news reporter for KPCC and the legendary KNX in Los Angeles. Her work has been published in the Washington Post and the New York Times, Foreign Policy and the Christian Science Monitor, and aired on NPR, CBS, and CNN. She left daily reporting in 2015 in order to run counterdisinformation sites Snopes and TruthOrFiction and fight the "fake news" crisis at it source. To that end, she also serves as an expert witness in high-profile cases against disinformation purveyors, most recently the Sandy Hook case against far-right broadcast personality Alex Jones, which ended in nearly a billion-dollar judgement against him. In 2017 and 2018, Binkowski exposed Facebook's ties to destabilizing democracies throughout the world.

She now believes that there are some truths that can only be understood through reading and writing fiction.
