Biography

Michelle Goldberg is a senior writer for Salon.com. Because the online magazine's staff is relatively small, its reporters' beats are large, and she's covered everything from New York's drug laws to Kurdish refugees in the Middle East, reporting from all over the United States and from Jordan, Egypt, Iraq, Israel and the West Bank. One constant in her peripatetic career is a fascination with the role of ideology in politics, leading her to report extensively on both sides of America's ever-seething culture war. In addition to working at Salon, Goldberg has been an adjunct professor at the Graduate School of Journalism at New York University, teaching a class called "Writing Social Commentary." She's also been a columnist for the San Francisco Bay Guardian and for Shift Magazine, and her work has appeared in publications including Rolling Stone, The New Republic online, The UK Guardian, The Utne Reader, Newsday and other newspapers nationwide.
