He hosted an afternoon radio talk show, Michael Harris Live, on Ottawa-based CFRA, and was a columnist for The Ottawa Sun newspaper until March 2011.

Born in Toronto, Ontario, to Audrey McDonald and James McDonald, Harris is a graduate of York University in Toronto, and was a Woodrow Wilson Scholar.
Harris went to Newfoundland in 1977, as a story editor for CBC Television owned-and-operated station CBNT's newscast Here and Now, before becoming publisher of The Sunday Express in St. John's, and later the Executive Director of News and Current Affairs for the Newfoundland Broadcasting Company, owners of the local then-CTV affiliate CJON. Harris was at one time a Queen’s Park correspondent for the National Post.
Harris is the author of Justice Denied: The Law Versus Donald Marshall, Unholy Orders: Tragedy at Mount Cashel, Rare Ambition: The Crosbies of Newfoundland, Con Game: The Truth About Canada’s Prisons, and Lament for an Ocean: The Collapse of the Atlantic Cod Fishery, which was a national bestseller. The Executive Director of the Sierra Club of Canada called it "The definitive book on the cod catastrophe... After reading this book, you wouldn’t trust the Department of Fisheries and Oceans with your aquarium". His 1976 novel "Outrider on Yonge Street" was never published.
