In Memory of Simon Maloy

News -- In Memory of Simon Maloy - We are heartbroken to inform you that our beloved friend and colleague Simon Maloy has passed away after a year-and-a-half-long battle with colon cancer. 

Simon has been a cherished member of the Media Matters family for more than 14 years, and he left a mark on the wider media landscape as well, with work published at outlets including The Week, Rolling Stone, American Prospect, and Salon. Simon’s brilliance shone through in everything he did -- especially his writing. His honesty, profound sense of right and wrong, and incisive wit have left an indelible mark on all of us, and we are all better for having known him.
We ask that you keep Simon and his family in your thoughts and please consider donating to this GoFundMe to help support his family and to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, to help fight colon cancer and support people facing the disease.

On June 10, Simon Maloy passed away after a year-and-a-half-long battle with colon cancer. 
Simon was a devoted father and uncle, a loving husband, a beloved son and brother, and a cherished friend and colleague. Simon shared his talent with the world through his writing, which was insightful, witty, and imbued with a profound sense of right and wrong. Everyone who encountered Simon respected him for his good nature, humor, and wisdom. To many, he was that almost impossibly hilarious guy on Twitter. 
He is survived by his wife Leslie and his sons, Avery and James. We are setting up this fund to help support Simon’s family -- especially his sons’ education -- as they move forward without him.
Thank you for your generosity.
