I have covered the media industry for major news organizations such as CBS News and Bloomberg News on and off since around 2000. My specialties include debunking conventional wisdom and breaking news. I am passionate about telling great stories and have an obsession with facts that borders on the maniacal. During my career, I have crossed paths with Howard Stern, Joan Rivers, Hugh Hefner and Sylvester Stallone. I have the rare distinction among media writers of angering both Keith Olbermann and Cap'n Crunch. During my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my wife and son when I am not torturing myself watching Philadelphia sports teams.
