Will Sommer joins The Washington Post as a media reporter

by | May 7, 2023

The Washington Post announced that Will Sommer will join The Post as a media reporter on May 15.

For five years, states the Post, Sommer has been “a politics reporter at the Daily Beast covering right-wing media and conspiracy theories. In articles and on his “Fever Dreams” podcast, Will has covered the breadth of the American right, from internal dissent at Fox News to a QAnon kidnapping gang. Will’s work has been featured in several documentaries, including HBO’s “Q: Into the Storm” and “After Truth.””

In February, HarperCollins published Sommer’s book on QAnon, “Trust the Plan: The Rise of QAnon and the Conspiracy That Unhinged America.” In his review, New York Times book critic Dwight Garner called Sommer “a media obsessive, almost morbidly well informed.”

Before working at the Daily Beast, he was a campaign editor at the Hill and the Loose Lips city hall columnist for Washington City Paper. Earlier in his career, he wrote DC Porcupine, a blog covering controversies at local D.C. media outlets.
