Isaac Stanley-Becker joins Washington Post’s politics staff for 2020
Isaac Stanley-Becker is joining the Washington Post’s politics staff as it prepares for its 2020 election coverage.
Stanley-Becker comes to the post after a distinguished stint on Morning Mix, a popular lively Washington Post blog that gives a daily rundown of the latest news.
Stanley-Becker will pioneer a “digital democracy” beat focused on the largely unregulated and increasingly dominant role of the internet in driving U.S. politics.
Working with colleagues on financial and national security, he will track the spread of disinformation and conspiracy theories, expose efforts by outside forces and special interests to influence U.S. politics and monitor the online strategies employed by candidates and their allies to control their messages, undermine their opponents and mobilize their supporters.
