The War Horse
As an editor for the online news organization, The War Horse, Anna Hiatt played a crucial role in breaking the Marines United scandal last year. Her efforts helped reveal that troops distributed thousands of explicit photographs of their female comrades through social media. In the wake of the news reports, Military leaders acted swiftly to punish those responsible and lawmakers passed legislation that seeks to amend Military code, outlawing and, hopefully, preventing future instances of similar harassment.
The D.C. native holds a Bachelor’s in history from UC Berkeley and Master’s in journalism from Columbia University. Hiatt’s work has appeared in The Washington Post, Washington City Paper, The Village Voice, The New Republic, Reuters, The New York Times, The Village Voice, Roads & Kingdoms, and on WNYC and NBC News Digital, among other organizations.
