On the Record edited by Annie Harrison

Welcome To On The Record

I'm a journalist who spent many years toiling away at newspapers, magaines, and public radio stations. For the past five years, I've been writing for nonprofit technology organizations that support online civil liberties, free speech and human rights data analysis.

I welcome your comments, tip offs, rants, complaints, condolences and suggestions. About a hundred years ago, writer Finley Peter Dunne said, "the job of the newspaper is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable." I think he got it about right.
