Daniel Golden (born 1957) is an American journalist, working as a senior editor for ProPublica.[1] He was previously senior editor at Conde Nast's now-defunct Portfolio magazine,[2] and a managing editor for Bloomberg News.[3][4]

As Deputy Bureau Chief at the Boston bureau of the Wall Street Journal he received the Pulitzer Prize for Beat Reporting in 2004 for a series of articles on admissions preferences in elite American universities, specifically relating to the enormous advantages enjoyed by more affluent white students,[5] and the use of development cases (admissions based on potential donations).[6] Golden is also a three time recipient of the George Polk Award.[7]

A series of articles that Golden edited about Corporate Tax Inversions won Bloomberg's first Pulitzer Prize in 2015.[8]

He holds a B.A. from Harvard College.

He is the author of The Price of Admission: How America's Ruling Class Buys Its Way into Elite Colleges—and Who Gets Left Outside the Gates.[9] His second book. Spy Schools: How the CIA, FBI, and Foreign Intelligence Secretly Exploit America's Universities, was published by Henry Holt and Co. in October 2017.[10]
