The New York Times has described Carmon as being "known for her smarts and feminist bona fides." Of Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg (2015) which spent three months on the Times' bestseller list, the paper’s staff book critic wrote, "That I responded so personally to it is a testimony to Ms. Carmon's storytelling and panache." Carmon was also featured in the award-winning and Oscar-nominated 2018 documentary RBG.

Carmon teamed up with the Washington Post’s investigative team to break the news of sexual harassment and assault allegations against Charlie Rose, as well as CBS's knowledge of his conduct. That work, which resulted in Rose’s firing the same day as publication, was recognized with a 2018 Mirror Award.

Carmon previously served as an on-air contributor to CNN, and a staff reporter at MSNBC and NBC News, Salon and Jezebel. Forbes honored her as one of 30 Under 30 in Media. Born in Israel and raised in New York, she graduated from Harvard, magna cum laude with highest honors in literature, in 2005. She lives in New York City with her husband and daughter. Read Less ^
