I'm Kali Holloway and I'm Digging for Stories Where the Corporate Media Doesn't Go
Hi AlterNet Readers,
I’m Kali, AlterNet investigative reporter. Trolls have made stalking, harassment and intimidation an everyday hazard of going online. I’ve spent weeks in the troll cesspools to understand how they operate and why.
