A senior at Yale University, Andrew Mangino is the former editor in chief of the Yale Daily News, the nation's oldest daily college newspaper. Before he was editor, Mangino was the News' politics reporter and law reporter, covering New Haven, campus politics, the three-way 2006 Connecticut Senate race and the presidential election, the Supreme Court and Yale Law School. Mangino was also the co-founder and publisher of Scoop08, a national online student newspaper focusing on the 2008 race; for the project, Mangino launched a non-profit, Scoop Media, Inc., charged with fostering student journalism nationwide. Mangino has written for The New York Observer and the New Haven Independent, and a column he wrote on Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito — his seventh-grade baseball coach — was published in the Star Ledger. In his senior year at James Caldwell High School in West Caldwell, NJ, Mangino brought a censorship dispute with the school principal to the American Civil Liberties Union, successfully inspiring an overhaul of the district's publications policy.
