She is a senior correspondent at The American Prospect, and a columnist for The Daily Beast and Slate. Her work has been published in the magazines The New Republic, Rolling Stone, and Glamour, and in The Guardian, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and other newspapers. The New York Times named Goldberg as an opinion columnist in September, 2017.


In the September 17, 2017 issue of The New York Times Book Review, Goldberg published a critical review of Vanessa Grigoriadis’ study of college rape Blurred Lines: Rethinking Sex, Power, and Consent on Campus. In the review, Goldberg incorrectly charged that Grigoriadis failed to write about certain Department of Justice statistics on the subject and incorrectly described the author’s presentation of statistics from the Rape, Abuse and Incest Network. The Book Review issued a correction of more than 100 words. “This review is factually incorrect from top to bottom,” Grigoriadis wrote to Book Review editor Pamela Paul. "Michelle essentially threw together some ideas she gathered during her time at Slate and punched me in the face with them. Michelle is free to dislike my book. She is not free to make demonstrably false statements that not only damage my book but my reputation and credibility as a reporter.”

Personal life

Goldberg lives in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, New York with her husband, Matthew Ipcar.
