Chris Jones, 100 Days in Appalachia, Report for America

On this episode, we’re joined by Chris Jones. Chris is a photojournalist and investigative reporter and covers domestic extremism for the collaborative non-profit website, 100 Days in Appalachia as a member of the Report for America program. 

He served as an infantryman in the United States Marine Corps from 2010–2014 and that included 2 deployments in Afghanistan. 

 Chris talked about his path to working in journalism and the work he’s done. He covered the attempted insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 as a photojournalist and explained how he got some of the pictures he got (including one that led to an arrest).

Chris also talked about other projects he’s done, including a piece for the New York Times on military challenge coins and their larger representation within the war in Afghanistan, and a 23-minute documentary and story that ran on The Intercept about a former Democrat city council member in West Virginia who stormed the U.S. Capitol.

He also discussed do’s and don’ts related to covering domestic extremism and work he’s doing to help reporters in that area, as well as how Report for America has helped him.
