Tim Cavanaugh is a journalist and screenwriter based in Alexandria, Virginia. He is an Executive Editor for "The Daily Caller" and a columnist for Reason Magazine. Prior to that, he was the managing editor of Reason.com, was Web editor of the Los Angeles Times opinion page, and was the editor in chief of Suck.com from 1998 to 2001.
Cavanaugh is a winner of two Los Angeles Press Club awards and a Webby Award. His work has appeared in The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, Slate, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Beirut Daily Star, San Francisco Magazine, Mother Jones, Agence France-Presse, Wired, Newsday, Salon, Orange County Register, The Rake magazine, and other publications.
A native of Margate, N.J., Cavanaugh also wrote the screenplay of Home Run Showdown, a family baseball film starring Matthew Lillard, Dean Cain and Annabeth Gish.
His satirical 2002 article mocking weblogs, "Let Slip the Blogs of War" (an update of an earlier article in Suck), infuriated many bloggers and was included in Perseus Publishing's anthology We've Got Blog. Nonetheless, shortly after joining Reason, Cavanaugh instituted the magazine's popular blog Hit & Run, which won a Weblog Award in 2005 and was named as one of Playboy's best political blogs.
