In March 2010, Media Matters for America announced the hiring of Joe Strupp as Investigative Reporter and Senior Editor. Strupp came to Media Matters after 10 years as a senior editor at Editor & Publisher magazine. He will be the organization's first Investigative Reporter, and his original work will appear on his new Media Matters blog "Strupp,".
"Hiring an investigative reporter is a new step for Media Matters, but it is one we're confident will pay off," said Eric Burns, President of Media Matters. "Joe has more than 20 years of reporting experience and is an expert on the media industry. I am thrilled he is leading us in this new endeavor."
"I am excited about joining Media Matters, which I believe does a wonderful service for press coverage and balanced reporting," said Strupp. "I believe my work will be a great addition to an already valuable and remarkable team. I can't wait to provide daily media information along with original reporting of the ups and downs of the media industry."
