Wall Street Journal reporter Byron Tau is leaving to become a reporter at the Albritton Journalism Institute, which is launching this fall.

Tau is an investigative and enterprise journalist who specializes in law, courts and national security. Over the course of more than a decade in Washington, Tau has covered all three branches of the federal government, most recently for The Journal.

For the Journal, he served as a White House reporter during the Obama administration; covered Congress with a focus on the intelligence, oversight and judiciary committees; and was a legal affairs and national security correspondent. Before that, he worked at Politico, where he covered the White House, lobbying, campaign finance and politics.

He’s the author of the forthcoming book “Means of Control” about how consumer data is increasingly being repurposed for government surveillance, expected to be released in March 2024 by Crown Publishing.
