I am a Professor in the Department of Government at Dartmouth College. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at Duke University and served as a RWJ Scholar in Health Policy Research at the University of Michigan before coming to Dartmouth. I also tweet at @BrendanNyhan and serve as a contributor to The Upshot at The New York Times. Previously, I served as a media critic for Columbia Journalism Review, co-edited Spinsanity, a non-partisan watchdog of political spin, and co-authored All the President's Spin.
