Ken Auletta has written the Annals of Communications column for The New Yorker since 1992. He is the author of ten books, including four bestsellers. These include, Three Blind Mice: How the TV Networks Lost Their Way; Greed and Glory on Wall Street: The Fall of The House of Lehman; and World War 3.0: Microsoft and Its Enemies.
In naming him America's premier media critic, the Columbia Journalism Review said, "no other reporter has covered the new communications revolution as thoroughly as has Auletta."
He lives in Manhattan with his wife.
