Kristen Lombardi named a Nieman Fellow

Kristen Lombardi

Congratulations to my friend and former Boston Phoenix colleague Kristen Lombardi, who will be a fellow at Harvard’s Nieman Foundation in 2011-’12. FOKs have known for a few weeks, but today Nieman made it official. It looks like an impressive group.

Kristen is a dogged investigative reporter, the best I worked with. While at the Phoenix, she broke several important parts of the pedophile-priest story months before the Boston Globe began its Pulitzer Prize-winning work. I’m proud to say I worked at the Phoenix during the Kristen Lombardi era.

For the past few years she’s been at the Center for Public Integrity, where she recently won a Dart Award for her reporting on sexual assault on college and university campuses.

    Maybe she can do something about the inability of journalists to properly characterize basic math:

    “Still, the controversy adds to what has been a rough 2012 campaign rollout. Per TPMDC, a Public Policy Polling survey released Thursday found that Gingrich’s favorable rating with GOP voters has dropped 27 points in the last month–from 52 percent to 38 percent.”
