Taiyler S. Mitchell is a writer with a passion for culture, social issues, and criminal justice, currently working on the breaking news desk at HuffPost.


But before her current position, she spent two years at the illustrious Howard University where she wrote for the historic Hilltop Newspaper. Two years in, she transferred to Dillard University and worked her way up to Editor-in-chief status at the Courtbouillon Newspaper before graduating Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in Mass Communication. 

From there, Taiyler began working at Insider where she wrote about a wide range of topics — including politics, entertainment, sex work, homelessness, policing, death row, and prisons. She also had a hand in breaking news, reporting on elections, covering multiple high-profile trials, and producing thought-provoking pieces about overseas issues — including interviewing sources who were inside the embattled countries of Afghanistan and Ukraine

Taiyler's coverage of the death penalty has been cited by The Death Penalty Information Center. Her reporting has also been referenced in multiple books such as "Reject Self-Serving Power: Helping Others Be Successful and Finding Selflessness in Business, Politics, and Life" by James Michael Matthew and "TikTok Cultures in the United States" by Trevor Boffone.

In addition, Taiyler has appeared on LX News, a subsidiary of NBCUniversal, to discuss her reporting on the heavy presence of cultural appropriation on TikTok.
