About Dan Froomkin


I've been writing White House Watch (originally called White House Briefing) since January 2004. It's an annotated and opinionated daily anthology of what I consider the most interesting White House-related items from newspapers, magazines, broadcast Web sites and blogs.

I'm also deputy editor of, a Web site devoted to encouraging watchdog and accountability journalism from the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University.

Before launching White House Watch, I spent seven years at, beginning as a senior producer for politics and ending as second-in-command of the newsroom. My journalism career began in 1986, and I have worked as a reporter at the Winston-Salem (N.C.) Journal, the Miami Herald and the Orange County Register. I was also a Michigan Journalism Fellow and editor of new media for Education Week. I grew up in Washington.

A collection of my columns from the Bush presidency can be found here.
