Bluey is a coordinator for the Open House Project, an effort to increase government transparency.
"Prior to joining Heritage in 2007, Bluey served as Editor of HumanEvents.com, which he transformed into a popular destination for conservative journalism. He was named editor of the Web site in November 2005 after spending a year as assistant editor and later managing editor of Human Events' print edition.
"Bluey also worked at Cybercast News Service, where he was the first journalist to report on the forged CBS documents on President Bush's National Guard service. He covered the Republican and Democratic conventions in 2004.
"He grew up in upstate New York and graduated from Ithaca College, where he edited the college's award-winning newspaper, The Ithacan. He remains closely involved with his alma mater, serving on its Alumni Association Board of Directors. During his college years, he worked for the Clinton Courier, Traverse Record-Eagle and The Los Angeles Times. After college, he was awarded a year-long fellowship at the Student Press Law Center in Arlington, Va."
