Deibert’s writing has appeared in The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Miami Herald, The Guardian, Folha de Sao Paulo, Le Monde diplomatique and the World Policy Journal, among other publications. From 2001 until 2003, he served as the Reuters correspondent in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. He has been featured as a commentator on international affairs on the BBC, Al Jazeera, Channel 4, National Public Radio and WNYC New York Public Radio.

Deibert’s first book, Notes from the Last Testament: The Struggle for Haiti, with an introduction by the Haitian filmmaker Raoul Peck, was published by Seven Stories Press in November 2005.

In addition to Haiti, Deibert has also reported extensively on Guatemala, France and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

While Deibert's work on Haiti has been praised by Haitian scholars and others, it has also been criticized for its perceived hostility to former Haitian president Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
