Proof: Some Notable Readers (United States)

This publication—and its social media feed—are followed by thousands of journalists, politicians, and other influential figures. Those who ask, "Who reads Proof?" can look below to get a better idea.

{Note: This is a work-in-progress. At present, only 65% or so of the U.S. media and political readers of Proof and its associated Twitter feed have been archived here. For an example of an entry that is now over 80% complete, see the one for “CNN” in the “Journalists” section.}

Introduction

Since I launched the Proof project in July 2018 by beginning to write Proof of Collusion (Simon & Schuster), far and away the most-asked question by followers of the project’s books, podcast, substack and Twitter feed has been this one: “Who sees the research you publish?” Readers, listeners, and viewers understandably wonder about the reach that Proof has domestically and internationally. If one follows the multimedia projects associated with Proof—and if one finds oneself struck by their biggest revelations—is the content one sees in fact only accessible to a select few?

The simple answer is absolutely not. The longer answer arrives—here, now—with this new Proof feature, which aims to, over a period of time, catalogue all the journalists, politicians, celebrities, and other assorted influential figures who follow the Twitter feed associated with Proof (which serves as the primary distribution point for all Proof content). If you’ve ever wondered whether individuals from your favorite media outlet follow this research project, or whether politicians close to the center of power in D.C. do, you can either browse the scores of lists below or use the “Ctrl+F” function on this article to have your questions answered. And if you have a similar question about the international readers of Proof, you can click on over to Proof: Some Notable Readers (International). Because literally thousands of individuals in the categories mentioned above follow Proof, this project is necessarily an ongoing one—meaning that the names you encounter below are very much a non-exhaustive list, representing just a sampling of those with a ready awareness of the content published here at Proof.

I do wish that I had compiled a list of this sort several years ago, as at various points so many fascinating figures have followed Proof content for brief periods, be it Twitter founder Jack Dorsey or Mark Hamill, Jeff Daniels or Bill Kristol, Anna Kendrick or Deepak Chopra, Bette Midler or LeVar Burton. Of course, the aim of a list like the one below isn’t to determine why any one individual does or doesn’t follow Proof, only to answer the most commonly asked question about the site: Who is aware of it now?

I think it would safe to say that no one who reads the hundreds and hundreds of names below could doubt that the research compiled by this publication is getting where it needs to go, whether through the thousands of full subscribers to the publication, the tens of thousands of email-list subscribers, the hundreds of thousands who follow one or more of the Proof social media feeds, or the millions who encounter Proof content on a daily basis via Twitter. Indeed, Proof crossed the “100 million retweets” threshold back in late 2020! Still, putting some names to those follows and retweets brings home, I hope, the potential influence Proof can have on journalists and power-brokers alike.

How to Use These Lists

One of the many reasons the lists below must be deemed non-exhaustive is because of the following four restrictions:

  • They consider only verified Twitter accounts;

  • They consider only accounts with clearly noted institutional affiliations;

  • They consider only those institutionally affiliated accounts whose holders are associated on a full-time basis with the institution in question (in other words, freelance work for a given media outlet does not, for the purposes of these lists, create a permanent, categorizable association between a journalist and an outlet);

  • They do not consider individuals who previously worked for an institution—even if that affiliation is noted by the individual—unless that course of past employment clearly coincided with the period the Proof project was operative. In practice, because it’s difficult to readily determine when someone worked for a media outlet, this means that the list below significantly understates the extent to which Proof is followed by those with meaningful affiliations to major-media institutions. By way of example, a 30-year veteran of the New York Times who retired at some uncertain point in the recent past wouldn’t be listed here.

{Note: Because the research regarding prize-winning authors and journalists was conducted separately, in a small number of cases prize-winning individuals whose Twitter accounts have not yet been verified are included in the lists below. All identities were separately confirmed.}

Another restriction limits the number of lists as opposed to the size of any one of them:

  • Journalists for pre-professional media outlets, such as college newspapers, are not considered, nor are local radio journalists. {Note: The non-listing of freelancers and/or student journalists is not intended as a slight—as I’ve been both a freelancer and a student journalist myself—but rather a recognition that student journalists may not be seeking to pursue journalism full-time, and that freelancers do not work as employees for the outlets with which they temporarily contract. As it happens, I also used to be a local radio journalist; as to why that group is not included in these lists, the simple answer is that it would be too large in size, and would quickly overwhelm the archive’s many lists.}

As to full-time employees, these lists consider various roles eligible for cataloging, including reporters, columnists, editors, directors, correspondents, researchers, hosts, writers, photojournalists, video journalists, data journalists, anchors, and producers.

Because journalists often move between organizations, some individuals listed below may be listed under organizations they have since departed. This listing will of course edit any entries upon request (see the contact form on my website). Having said this, if an individual is listed below, it means that I have seen with my own two eyes that they follow Proof, whether or not—at some unknown future date—they happen to continue to do so.

The list below is alphabetical within each category, with the categories being these eleven: Politicians (National); Politicians (State); Journalists Working with Media Institutions; Selected Independent Journalists; Award Winners; Selected Media Outlets, Programs, and Publications; Selected Institutional Accounts; Selected For-Profit and Nonprofit Figures; Selected Law, Journalism, and Government Professors; Selected Military Figures; Other Notable Figures; and Trumpworld. Note that the last six categories in particular have been the subject of little research thus far; they are presented here to offer a sense of how this new archive will expand over time.
