I'm Michael Edison Hayden and It's Gonna Be a Long Night is my newsletter. I'm an investigative reporter who has been covering the radical right exclusively as a topic since 2017. I currently work as a Senior Investigative Reporter and Spokesperson for Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). I also proudly serve as steward for SPLC Union of the Washington-Baltimore News Guild.

The newsletter is free. I already receive a salary from my employer!  You can donate to SPLC by clicking here.

If you sign up, you will receive email updates about my work, the work of my colleagues, and commentary related to my beat. That's it.
