Since then, her reporting on the gun industry
has appeared in Epoch Times, Public Citizen’s Health Letter and on many websites including AlterNet, Counterpunch, Opednews, Dissident Voice, Truthout, Newsblaze and on the site of the Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism at the University of Southern California.
In 2012, Rosenberg published Born with a Junk Food Deficiency (Prometheus) an expose about the drug and food industries, acclaimed by the Public Library of Science, Library Journal, the Chicago Sun-Times and many book reviews. “Born” received an honorable mention in the American Society of Journalists and Authors 2013 Outstanding Book
awards for general nonfiction.
Before journalism, Rosenberg worked in the advertising industry as a copywriter and marketing professional. She studied philosophy and writing at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where she was awarded the prestigious Kerker-Quinn writing award.
