Mattathias Schwartz is a former National Security Reporter for The Intercept. He has served as a contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine, a staff writer at the New Yorker, and is currently a term member at the Council on Foreign Relations. In the past, he has contributed to the print editions of the Wall Street Journal, Wired, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, MIT Technology Review, Harper’s, and the London Review of Books, among other publications. He founded and funded the Philadelphia Independent, a broadsheet newspaper, and served as editor and publisher for its 21-issue run. “A Massacre in Jamaica,” Schwartz’s investigation into the extradition of Christopher “Dudus” Coke, for the New Yorker, won the Livingston Award for International Reporting. “A Mission Gone Wrong,” an investigation of the killing of four Honduran civilians during a DEA-led drug interdiction, was later nominated for the same award. Schwartz also wrote “The Whole Haystack,” which examines the government’s collection of domestic phone metadata under the controversial Section 215 program.
