Politics

John Harris worked for over 20 years at the Washington Post covering politics and the White House before leaving in 2006 to co-found Politico, an political journalism media company, and become its editor-in-chief, a post he held until 2019. Politico delivers its message mainly via its website, Politico.com, but also through its popular daily email 'Playbook' and a print version paper in the Washington DC area. As John puts it, he stumbled into journalism during his freshman year at Carleton College by writing a few articles for the student newspaper, The Carletonian. He was hooked. Currently John still writes a regular article for the Politico Magazine called "Altitude" which provides a perspective on politics in a moment of radical disruption. You can find the series of articles online here: www.politico.com/tag/altitude John will talk to the club on a timely political topic (very likely election related!) and answer questions.  Hosted by Bent Nystrom
