Russ BakerRussell Warren "Russ" Baker (born 1958) is an American author, and investigative journalist. Baker is the editor-in-chief and founder of the nonprofit news website ''WhoWhatWhy''. Earlier in his career he has written for a variety of publications, including ''The New York Times Magazine,'' ''The New Yorker'', ''The Washington Post'', ''Esquire,'' ''Vanity Fair'', and ''The Village Voice''.
Baker is the author of the 2008 book ''Family of Secrets'' that probes the Bush family and alleges connections between President George H.W. Bush and individuals involved with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the Watergate scandal. The book was poorly received by critics.
Baker's reporting has often been at variance with articles published in the mainstream media, and in 2015 he was described by journalist Ben Schreckinger as "a key player on the fringe." Provided by Wikipedia
