Brookes Journalism Fellow.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Lott comes to CEI from the Cato Institute, where he served as Manager of Editorial Services. He is also the author of In Defense of Hypocrisy: Picking Sides in the War on Virtue , published earlier this year by Nelson Current.
“We are extremely pleased to have Jeremy Lott join us as the thirteenth journalist to hold the fellowship named in honor of the late Warren T. Brookes,” said CEI President Fred L. Smith, Jr.  “I know Jeremy’s keen insights into contemporary society will inform his work here at CEI, where we expect his unique brand of challenging and controversial journalism to spark discussion throughout Washington and beyond.”
Lott has also served as Assistant Managing Editor of the American Spectator and written for a wide array for newspapers, magazines and online sources, including the Financial Times, the New York Post, the Washington Post, Reason, and the Weekly Standard. He is a graduate of Trinity Western University in British Columbia.
The one-year fellowship is named in honor of the late nationally syndicated columnist, Warren T. Brookes, who was known for his detailed reporting, informed by science and economics. Through the program, established after Brookes’ death in 1991, CEI allows journalists the opportunity to improve their knowledge of the principles of free markets and limited government.
Previous Warren Brookes Fellows have included editor-in-chief of The Hill Hugo Gurdon, Reason magazine managing editor Jesse Walker, and author James Bovard.
