Well-Known Writer Eric Boehlert Dies
in Bicycle Crash With NJ Transit Train


Media critic Eric Boehlert, who created the Press Run website and wrote for Rolling Stone and Media Matters for America, was struck and killed by an NJ Transit train as he rode his bicycle near his home in Montclair earlier this week. He was 57.

An avid bike rider, Boehlert was struck by a commuter train while riding near his home in Montclair on Monday night, according to journalist Soledad O’Brien, a family friend and host of the syndicated Sunday talk show "Matter of Fact."

O'Brien said Boehlert specialized in exposing disinformation and holding fellow journalists and politicians accountable. She called him "dogged about facts and a defender of truth" in a lengthy Twitter thread mourning the devastating loss. You must have a Twitter account in order to read the additional story.
