Michael IsikoffMichael R. Isikoff (born June 16, 1952) is an American investigative journalist who is currently the Chief Investigative Correspondent at ''Yahoo! News''. He is the co-author with David Corn of the book entitled ''Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin's War on America and the Election of Donald Trump'', published on March 13, 2018.
From July 2010 to April 2014, Isikoff was the national investigative correspondent for NBC News. He resigned from NBC, citing the network's move in a direction that left him with "fewer opportunities" for his work. He had previously worked for ''Newsweek'', which he joined as an investigative correspondent in June 1994, and wrote extensively on the U.S. government's War on Terrorism, the Abu Ghraib torture and prisoner abuse, campaign finance and congressional ethics abuses, presidential politics and other national issues.
Isikoff had been prepared to break the Monica Lewinsky scandal, but several hours before going to print, the article was killed by top ''Newsweek'' executives. As a result, the story broke first on Matt Drudge's ''Drudge Report'' the following morning. Isikoff's book on the subject, ''Uncovering Clinton: A Reporter's Story'', was named Best Non-Fiction Book of 1999 by the Book of the Month Club. Provided by Wikipedia
