2016 Election Business As Usual? NYT’s Ashley Parker on Harper Simon’s TALK SHOW

vor 4 Jahren

The 2016 election and how Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Bernie Sanders and the rest of the candidates look heading into the race is discussed with New York Times journalist Ashley Parker. From her experience working with Maureen Dowd, to the real world importance (if there is any) of race and gender in the White House, we look at the ongoing dilemma of the Iraq War and ISIS, and ask if anyone has the momentum to beat Hillary Clinton for the democratic nomination in this conversation filmed in Washington D.C., for Harper Simon’s TALK SHOW.

Ashley Parker is a Washington-based reporter for The New York Times, and has also written for The New York Times Magazine. Previously, she worked as a researcher for Maureen Dowd, a Times columnist. Ms. Parker's work has also appeared in other publications including The New York Sun, Glamour, The Huffington Post, Washingtonian, Chicago Magazine and LIFE. Her photographs have appeared in Vanity Fair.
