Russ Baker is an old-fashioned muckraking journalist and pamphleteer using the newest technologies. In his reporting and writing he brings the best of mainstream methods (balance and rigor) to the alternative media, and the best of the alternative media (passion for the truth and the larger story) to the mainstream. He focuses on getting past the rhetoric to expose the hidden levers and machinations that shape our world. Bakers investigative reporting, analysis pieces, features, and essays on politics, power, and perceptions have appeared in many of the worlds finest publications.
In 2004, Baker devoted himself largely to researching stories that provided disturbing insights into the pre-presidential behavior of George W. Bush. He also explored the integrity of the voting system and examined instances of alleged election fraud.
In 2005, Baker founded Who What Why/The Real News Project, a news organization dedicated to producing ground-breaking, transformative, independent investigative journalism.
In 2009, Bakers book, FAMILY OF SECRETS: The Bush Dynasty, The Powerful Forces That Put it in the White House, and What Their Influence Means for America is being published by Bloomsbury Press.
