A May 10, 2017 Truthout byline notes that Meronek is currently a Nation Institute grantee investigating the post-prison civil commitment system.
Meronek was co-author, with Andrew Szeto of a controversial May 10, 2017 article on Truthout, entitled "YIMBYs: The Alt-Right Darlings of the Real Estate Industry." The title of the article was subsequently retracted and the "Alt-Right" removed.
A follow-up article by Szeto and Merone published as an op-ed in the San Francisco Examiner on May 21, stated:
"In the aftermath of our article’s publication, we have been the subjects of a mass doxing campaign — a common tact used by the alt-right against leftists. Our personal information has been shared widely over the internet, and our employers and publishers harassed, presumably to have us fired."
