Nicholas Fondacaro

Associate Editor, NewsBusters

Nick is the Associate Editor of NewsBusters. He grew up in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, and graduated from Binghamton University in 2013 with a degree in Political Science. While at Binghamton, Nick served as the Speaker of the Student Assembly and wrote for The Binghamton Review, where his love for journalism started. After graduating, Nick interned at the Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity, where he worked with Watchdog Arena.

Starting as an MRC intern, then a News Analyst on the night shift, and then an editor, Nick has been with the MRC and NewsBusters for seven years. He is one of the organization’s most-read bloggers with millions of page views and has grown into one of the faces of the organization.

In 2021, he caught NBC Nightly News deceptively editing a 9-1-1 call from a police-involved shooting and obfuscating a knife in the hand of an attacker inches away from killing a teenage girl. His report was picked up across conservative media and was even hinted at on CNN, and received so much attention that NBC fixed their reporting the following evening.

Since moving to the day shift, Nick has also become the go-to Twitter (now X) account for clips from ABC’s The View. He was the first to report when co-host Whoopi Goldberg suggested the Holocaust wasn’t about race and when co-host Sunny Hostin made racist remarks about Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) and former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

In recent years, Nick has acted as a fill-in host for the NewsBusters Podcast and oversees educating and publishing NewsBusters interns.

Between the months of September and December, Nick can be found every Sunday cheering on his New York J! E! T! S! Jets Jets Jets!
