San Diego, CA, United States
Anthony Berteaux is an award-winning digital journalist and writer with bylines in the Washington Post, Huffington Post, the San Diego Union-Tribune and the Tower Magazine (among other outlets). He is San Diego State's 2017 recipient of the Zahn Spirit of Innovation Award.
His coverage and commentary on Japanese domestic policy, anti-Semitism on college campuses and Asian-American representation in the media has both enraged and inspired readers online. In 2015, Bill Maher even called him a “little shit.”
His written work has been featured and responded to in the New York Post, CNN International, New York Daily News, BBC World Radio, the Washington Post, Mozaic Magazine, USA Today, the Washington Times and Real Time with Bill Maher. In 2016, Anthony spoke on a segment for CNN International to talk about Chris Rock’s controversial (and quite frankly, racist) Asian joke at the Oscars. In 2017, he spoke on BBC World Service’s radio segment, “My Perfect Country,” to talk about gun control and policy in Japan and the United States. His anecdote about how Japanese police handle disorderly conduct became a viral Twitter meme.
He is currently a Campus Editor at Large for the Huffington Post and a radio host for KCR College Radio where he runs a weekly talk show. During the week, he interns at the Anti-Defamation League of San Diego as a social media editor and with the San Diego Union-Tribune's Opinion and Editorial team as a writer. Anthony has previously worked for San Diego State’s campus newspaper, the Daily Aztec, as an assistant opinion editor and senior staff writer, where he frequently broke readership records. Anthony was also a 2015 Tower Tomorrow Fellow for the Israel Project in Washington DC, where he co-founded his own monthly magazine, ProgressME Magazine.
