About Undercovered

The idea behind this blog is to provide a place for people to find, discuss and share news about important or at least interesting issues from around the world that are generally overlooked and undercovered by the big-time media. In particular, we’re talking crime and justice in their many forms, international news and how technology is changing everything. Please check it out, and by all means, chime in!

Me? I’m an award-winning magazine writer based in Los Angeles, and have spent nearly 20 years writing about such stuff. I’ve ridden along with emergency first responders in the days after Haiti’s earthquake, exposed conditions in California’s harshest prisons, spent quality time with a Las Vegas billionaire building inflatable hotels in outer space and hunted down other stories from around the world for publications including The Los Angeles Times Magazine, Harper’s, The Atlantic, Wired, The Village Voice, The New Republic, The Nation, Mother Jones and Rolling Stone.

My work has been honored by Investigative Reporters and Editors, the Columbia, Medill and Missouri Graduate Schools of Journalism, the National Mental Health Association, the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies and many other institutions. I have also twice been part of a team that won the National Magazine Award for General Excellence, the magazine industry’s highest honor. You can find out more at vincebeiser.com.
