Andrew Kaczynski is the senior editor and founding member of CNN's Kfile — the leading investigation team for the social, mobile generation. Kfile is widely praised as a "scoop team," known for breaking news by scouring the internet through research, fact checking, and investigative reporting. Kaczynski and Kfile have exposed some of the most controversial statements, deceptions and hypocrisies from politicians -- both in office and on the campaign trail including uncovering interviews of Donald Trump's controversial comments on Howard Stern's Show. Within the first year of the Trump Administration, Kfile's reporting of government officials led to 10 resignations or withdrawals of nomination.
Kaczynski joined CNN from BuzzFeed, where he started as a political reporter in 2011. He quickly built a reputation at a young age for unearthing newsworthy archival videos, many of which later went viral. Notable scoops include the revelation that Donald Trump expressed support for the Iraq War in 2002 and evidence Kentucky Senator Rand Paul plagiarized speeches.
Kaczynski's unique reporting tactics have earned him widespread recognition. He was named to Forbes Magazine's "30 Under 30: Media" list for 2017, and his use of social media earned him many awards, including The Daily Beast's 2013 "Beast Best" award for his Twitter Feed and New York Magazine's 13th most influential Tweeter in New York City in 2014.
