Accounting reporter Rapoport has left WSJ
Michael Rapoport, a reporter at the Wall Street Journal who covered accounting, has left the paper.
His last day was Friday.
Rapoport had been at the Journal since 2010, and at Dow Jones in general since 1993.
In a farewell email to his colleagues, he wrote:
“Thank you for your friendship, your skill and your commitment to our craft. You are some of the most talented journalists it’s ever been my privilege to know, and I am proud and honored to have worked with and among you.
“I hope our paths cross in the future.”
He wrote about a wide variety of issues related to accounting, including the accounting industry, accounting and auditing rules and regulation, and accounting fraud.
