(The Pontiac Tribune) — Claire Bernish attended the University of Cincinnati and School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She was born in North Carolina and lived in Cincinnati, Ohio for most of her life before relocating to Pontiac, Michigan in August of 2015.
Political activism and journalism has always been a major part of her life. Both of her parents were journalists during the Watergate era, and her father was once a Washington, D.C. politician, himself. Being surrounded by such a politically active family gave Claire an inside view into the reality of American politics.
I write because unity of purpose, not mind, will solve everything; because I can tell you from experience there is always something you are not being told; because I want to tell you what they don’t.”
Claire started on her current path in August 2014 when she felt she had to drive to Ferguson following Mike Brown’s murder. She learned how to live stream events on the spot, and shared the experience on social media.
The Pontiac Tribune published Claire’s first article, ISIS in Afghanistan Starts Replacing Taliban, in March 2015. Her first piece for The Anti-Media, 117 Countries Slam American Police Brutality at UN Human Rights Council, was published just two months later.
The rest is history.
Now she’s back at The Pontiac Tribune, where she made her alternative media debut. But this time, she’s ready to take on the world as Editor-in-Chief.
