Roger D. Hodge was the editor of the liberal Harper's Magazine from March 2006 to January 2010. Hodge first started at Harpers as an intern in 1996 after having attended the University of the South where he majored in comparative literature and did his graduate work at the New School for Social Research where he'd complete his master's degree in philosophy. Harpers was impressed with him and he became a fact checker there. He edited their reading section from 1999 to 2003. He also relaunched Harper's website in 2000. After his departure from Harper's in 2010, later that year, Hodge authored "The Mendacity of Hope: Barack Obama and the betrayal of American liberalism", a book that is critical of Obama from a liberal perspective which was released on October 8, 2010. Ironically, Hodge admitted to voting for Obama during his debate with Newsweek's Jonathan Alter on C-SPAN. Funny Hodge didn't consider voting for Ralph Nader or Cynthia McKinney instead.
Hodge was born in 1967 in Del Rio, Texas. He currently lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife Deborah and their two sons, Sebastian and Wriley.
