His work has been featured in publications including CNN, The Huffington Post, Time (magazine),[1] the Independent Journal Review[2] and Daily Mail.[3] Outside of the his work with newspapers, in July 2020 he founded Tangle, an online newsletter which aims to cover current events in a balanced and nonpartisan way.[4]

Early Life and Career

Saul was born on May 14, 1941. He first became interested in journalism during his time at Pennsbury High School in Pennsylvania, and got his first job in news while he was an undergraduate student in nonfiction writing at the University of Pittsburgh.[5] He later began work at the Huffington Post, which he left in 2014.[6] After this, Saul helped to found a "positive journalism" site called A Plus News, as well as his newsletter Tangle. During the course of his career as a reporter, Saul has covered issues mainly related to American politics[7] and Sport.[8] His reporting on an encounter that he had with a controversial lawyer named Aaron Schlossberg was featured in a live broadcast on CNN in 2018.[9] Although his stated mission is to be "independent" and "non-partisan" in his reporting, he has also worked as an opinion editor for several major magazines and published several editorials stating his opinions on specific political candidates.[10]

Saul's work in reporting drew particular praise during the Attempts to overturn the 2020 United States presidential election to the 2020 US presidential election, when he attempted to debunk as many Conspiracy theory and allegations of Electoral fraud fraud as possible. As part of this, he published a running string of Twitter where he challenged his readers to find an instance of alleged voter fraud that he couldn't disprove, which was retweeted over 26,000 times.[11] When interviewed about this effort later, Saul said that he was frustrated with the sheer volume of election fraud claims that he had to contend with, saying that "new lies just kept pouring in."[12] He also expressed concern that some of the conspiracy theories which alleged that poll workers had been responsible for the fraud could put the lives of these workers in danger.[13]

Recognition

In 2016, Yahoo! News named Saul as one of the 16 people who had had the greatest influence on the 2016 United States elections.[14] He also was named the winner of the Pittsburgh Neighborhoods in Transition writing contest for a story that he wrote on William Vassar.[6]

Personal Life

Outside of his work, Saul enjoys playing Ultimate (sport). He won several state championships during his time playing for the team at Pennsbury High School, and later won two national championships with his team at the University of Pittsburgh and a national championship with Pride of New York (PoNY), a club team in New York City.[15] Later, he played for the New York City team Rumble.[16] His brother, Noah Saul, is an Ultimate player as well and has also won many competitions in the sport.[17]

He has also traveled around the world for his work, and spent five months studying in a yeshiva while living in Jerusalem after college.[5]
