Joshua Hersh is a freelance journalist and the Middle East correspondent for the Huffington Post, based in Beirut, Lebanon.
From July 2011 to April 2012, I was a foreign policy reporter for HuffPost based in Washington, D.C., where my work also included reporting trips to Egypt, Lebanon, and Afghanistan. Prior to that, I was one of the original staff reporters for The Daily, News Corporation's newspaper for the iPad, where I covered the revolution in Egypt, politics in Washington, D.C., and general domestic and international affairs. As a freelance writer and journalist, my work has appeared in the New Yorker, the National (Abu Dhabi), the Atlantic Monthly (online), the New Republic, and other places. From early 2009 to late 2010, I was a freelancer based in Beirut, Lebanon, where I was a regular contributor to the Review section of the National and, in August 2010, the paper's Beirut correspondent. I was also an occasional correspondent for the English-language television channel of France 24. From 2004-2009, I worked as a fact-checker at the New Yorker, and as a freelance journalist in Brooklyn, New York. I graduated from Columbia University in 2004.
