What a time to be in the media! With all the ups and downs of the last year, you may be looking for some clarity (or how to turn your television off!). But let us tempt you with a sophisticated night out instead. Maureen Dowd is coming to Dell Hall November 18th to talk frankly about the politics of now, joined by fellow New York Times journalist Carl Hulse.
Known for her witty, incisive and often acerbic portraits of the powerful, Pulitzer Prize-winning Dowd has been a NYT Op-Ed columnist since 1995, after having served as a correspondent in the paper’s Washington bureau for nine years. She has covered four presidential campaigns and served as White House correspondent. In 1992 Dowd was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for national reporting, finally winning her Pulitzer seven years later.
She and Hulse will discuss the roller coaster ride of the last eighteen months in politics, including an insider take on current DC power brokers: the politicians, advisers, lobbyists, and other creatures that populate the news and keep our country running.
Get to know her brand of critical observation in this video with Charlie Rose, speaking about her latest book The Year of Voting Dangerously: The Derangement of American Politics. Having covered nine presidential campaigns over the decades, Dowd has plenty to say.
