Before rejoining Mother Jones in 2012, Clint was deputy editor of the Columbia Journalism Review, where he covered media law, government transparency, and the political press.
Raised in Louisville, Kentucky, Clint attended Dartmouth College where he edited the biweekly Free Press. After graduating, he worked at Mother Jones as an online intern and fellow, honed his paper-jam clearing skills as a desk assistant at PBS’s The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, and went to Columbia’s journalism school. His writing has been published by the New York Times, the Independent, AlterNet, The Nation, and CNN. He swims year round in San Francisco's Aquatic Park and ferments, pickles, and scratches a small patch of dirt in the city's Bernal Heights neighborhood.
