Rachel Cohen joins Vox as senior reporter covering domestic politics
Rachel Cohen joins Vox as a senior reporter covering domestic politics. Rachel was most recently a contributing writer for the Intercept and a freelance writer whose work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Atlantic, The Guardian, and many other outlets.
I’ve long followed Rachel’s political journalism with admiration and, frankly, jealousy — she’s a prolific, thoughtful journalist and writer who shares Vox’s dedication to mission-driven journalism. She covered a remarkably wide range of policy issues, including education, labor, climate, criminal justice, healthcare, childcare, and more. She has written about the fights to reopen schools, the growing grip of black money on Democrats, and the guardianship policies that have left people stuck on assisted living during the pandemic, with her sensitivity and rigor of Mark.
Rachel’s work brings clarity to important moments in the news; he challenges orthodoxy and asks tough questions; it embraces nuance. In short, it exemplifies what we want Vox politics reporting to be, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Rachel to the team.
Rachel is based in Washington, DC. Her first day is April 4 and she will report to me.
