"At the New York Post, Mr. Ruddy’s[2] series on abuses of the Social Security Disability programs led to national media attention and congressional reforms. Also while at the Post, Mr. Ruddy broke several stories relating to the death investigation of Deputy White House Counsel Vince Foster.

"He continued his reporting on that case and on the Clinton-Gore scandals as a correspondent with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review."
