Jonathan M. Katz

Journalist and Author

Jonathan M.Katz is a journalist and author. As the Associated Press chief correspondent in Haiti, he survived and was first to internationally report the January 2010 earthquake, then stayed to cover the aftermath and flawed recovery that followed. That fall he broke the story that the United Nations likely caused—and was covering up its role in—a postquake cholera epidemic that killed thousands more. Prior to moving to Haiti, he was based for two years in the Dominican Republic. Katz is now a freelance journalist covering international and domestic affairs.
