Not since the Watergate era have journalists—for better or worse—been front and center in our political debates. In newspaper parlance, theirs are the “above the fold” names—the reporters whose stories get attention and whose nuanced insights into current events make them essential resources for anyone who wants to know how Washington works.
In this timely series, get an inside look at today's news business from several acclaimed journalists who know what it takes to bring you the news you need, if not want.
Stahl is a well-known broadcast journalist and correspondent for 60 Minutes. She moderated Face the Nation from 1982-1991. Stahl is the author of Reporting Live and Becoming Grandma: The Joys and Science of the New Grandparenting.
