CorpWatch Staff and Advisory Board

Terry J. Allen, Editor (freelance)

Terry is a veteran investigative journalist. An editor for CorpWatch since 2003, Terry brings extensive experience. She is a senior editor at In These Times, and previously edited Amnesty International's US magazine. More recently, Terry's work has expanded into film notes and research, working on such films as Academy Award winner Fahrenheit 911 and Sundance documentary grand prize winner "Trouble the Water."

Khalil Bendib, Political Cartoonist (freelance)

Khalil is an award-winning political cartoonist based in Berkeley whose work is distributed to 1,500 small and mid-sized newspapers weekly. His cartoons are also featured in dozens of ethnic and progressive print and on-line publications across the USA and Canada. Born under a French colonial regime, Khalil brings a fresh, non-Eurocentric perspective that is mostly absent from US corporate media. His hard-hitting, quixotic cartoons don't shy away from lancing the taboos of Free-Market fundamentalism. In the proud tradition of watchdog journalism, Khalil's work aims to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable and give a voice to the voiceless underdog. More of his work may be seen at
