A regular panelist on WGBH-TV’s “Beat the Press,” Dan Kennedy writes the blog Media Nation and is the author of “The Return of the Moguls: How Jeff Bezos and John Henry Are Reinventing Newspapers for the Twenty-First Century” (ForeEdge, 2018).

In addition to media and political commentary, Kennedy writes the New England Muzzle Awards, an annual feature in which he turns a spotlight on those who diminish free speech. He and civil-liberties lawyer Harvey Silverglate launched the Muzzles for the late, lamented Boston Phoenix in 1998. Since 2013 the Muzzles have been hosted by WGBH News.

Kennedy is an associate professor of journalism at Northeastern University.
