Hi, I’m Molly.

MOLLY MINTA

I’m a fact-checker and freelance journalist based in Brooklyn. I’m originally from a tiny beach town on the east coast of Florida that has the questionable honor of being the site of Ponce de Leon’s landing in North America.

I started in journalism editing an alternative quarterly in Gainesville, Florida, called The Fine Print, while I was in college. After graduating in 2019, I interned at the The Nation, where I was trained to fact-check articles ranging from book reviews to investigative pieces. Since then, I’ve fact-checked for The Appeal, The Hechinger Report, and Mother Jones.

I’ve also written on a number of subjects from a mismanaged Section 8 complex in Miami where residents began to organize to how Florida state attorneys abuse their discretion to avoid prosecuting sex crimes.
