Dylan Scott first picked up a notepad and pen as a junior in high school to write for his hometown newspaper. In the 10 years that have followed, he has reported on everything from high school sports to the most consequential Supreme Court cases in a generation.
He is currently a reporter for National Journal, primarily covering health care and other domestic policy areas. Since coming to Washington, D.C., in 2011, his reporting has been referenced by the top news organizations in the United States, such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, Slate, ProPublica, The New Republic, MSNBC, Salon, The Wire, Esquire, The Dish, Gawker and SCOTUSblog.
He was previously a reporter for Talking Points Memo, where his portfolio included health care as well as foreign policy and the nascent Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, and a staff writer for Governing magazine, covering state and local governments from the national level. The centerpiece of his work has been coverage of the Affordable Care Act, from the Supreme Court’s hearings on its constitutionality to its implementation and effects. He was a primary contributor to the Governing Generations series, on aging in America, which won the 2013 American Society of Business Publication Editors award for Best Feature Series.
Dylan’s first job out of college took him to the award-winning Las Vegas Sun, where he covered the fallout of the Great Recession in one of the country’s hardest-hit metropolitan areas.
Before graduating from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University in 2010, he was awarded first place by the Associated Press Society of Ohio for Best Investigative Reporting for a series of stories exposing questionable accounting practices and budget decisions by the university’s administration.
