In 2006, while a student journalist, Kennard accused then Leeds University lecturer Frank Ellis of racism and was interviewed on the Today programme on BBC Radio 4. During this period, Kennard wrote for Leeds Student. He also broke the story in the University of California, Los Angeles student paper, the Daily Bruin, of attempts by Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz to suppress the publication of Norman Finkelstein's Beyond Chutzpah by the University of California Press. Dershowitz made accusations against him.
Kennard is the author of Irregular Army: How the US Military Recruited Neo-Nazis, Gang Members, and Criminals to Fight the War on Terror published by Verso Books and The Racket: A Rogue Reporter vs. the Masters of the Universe published by Zed Books. He is the Deputy Director of the Centre for Investigative Journalism.
