Michele Mitchell is an American journalist and author who covers politics and social issues [1] for PBS, CNN Headline News and, currently, Film@11.

She grew up in Yorba Linda, California, and attended Esperanza High School, where she ran track and cross country, and wrote for the school newspaper as well as the youth section of the Los Angeles Times [2]. She attended Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, where she earned a BSJ and MSJ in 1992. Throughout her college career, she wrote sports for the Chicago Tribune. However, her first job was on Capitol Hill with Rep. Pete Geren (D-TX), where she worked as communications director for three years.

Her journalism career began during the height of the "Generation X" political trend [3], which she wrote about in 1998 in her first book, A New Kind of Party Animal: How the Young Are Changing Politics As Usual (Simon & Schuster). The book led to a job at CNN Headline News as a political analyst for the 2000 election [4]. In 2001, she became the political anchor at Headline News, covering daily political stories and, post-9/11, she filed one of the last interviews given by the legendary mujahadeen Abdul Haq [5]. She left Headline News in 2003 after her second novel was published, but returned to television on "NOW with Bill Moyers" on PBS. There, she filed investigative stories on the war on terror, vote fraud, women and the economy, and the Abramoff scandal.

In 2006, she founded the independent multi-platform media company Film@11 [6].

She is the recipient of a Gracie award [7] and also received an honorable citation from the Overseas Press Awards for her coverage of Nepalese girls sold into indentured servitude [8]. She also serves on the advisory board of the Authors Guild of America and of Amman Imman [9].
