Rest in Peace

Simon Maloy ’03 died yesterday after enduring a year-and-a-half-long fight with colon cancer.  Simon was a researcher and a journalist with Media Matters for more than 14 years. He was, at one time, in charge of listening to the Rush Limbaugh radio show and providing his readers with commentary and fact-checking services.

Simon appeared in the pages of Ephblog over a decade ago talking about his experience as a Limbaugh listener. Over his career, his work was published at The Week, Rolling Stone, American Prospect, and Salon. He was a history major at Williams College.

Some of his friends have set up a page at GoFundMe in his honor. So far, donors have given $67,696 toward an overall goal of $125,000. You can find this GoFundMe page by clicking on the following link.
