Bio

Alexander Reed Kelly
Alexander Reed Kelly
Mark Malijan

In December 2010 Alex was arrested outside the White House while protesting America’s wars. With him were Truthdig columnist Chris Hedges, Pentagon whistle-blower Daniel Ellsberg and 130 other activists, many of them veterans. The group was released within hours, and a few weeks later Alex began an internship at Harper’s Magazine. He joined Truthdig in May 2011 as an assistant editor.

Prior to working for the site, Alex covered the United Nations’ annual climate change conferences in Copenhagen for the Seattle-based reporting firm InvestigateWest and in Cancun on a fellowship from the Earth Journalism Network. His team’s coverage of the Copenhagen talks won a first place award from the Society of Professional Journalists. He studied literature and skepticism at Western Washington University, writes the ‘Truthdigger of the Week’ column, and was in Zuccotti Park for Occupy Wall Street. He has published work at Truthdig, Counterpunch and elsewhere.
