Politico’s Daniel Lippman and seasoned investigative journalist Tim Burger join the pod to discuss what the gruesome death of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi and The White House reaction means for a free & open media at home, and around the world.
Daniel Lippman is a reporter for POLITICO and a co-author of POLITICO’s Playbook, the most indispensable morning newsletter for the biggest influencers in politics. He graduated from The Hotchkiss School in 2008 and from The George Washington University in 2012. Daniel hails from the Berkshires in western Massachusetts and enjoys playing tennis, seeing movies and trying out new restaurants in his free time.
Tim Burger is a writer and consultant based in the Washington, DC, area, where he was a full-time journalist from 1989 until 2010. Tim broke numerous investigative, national security and political stories as a staff writer at publications such as TIMEMagazine, the New York Daily News, Bloomberg News, Roll Call and Legal Times. Tim recently wrote a widely-noted article in POLITICO Magazine last June about gay staff in the George W. Bush White House. He is a contributor to VICE News, where in December he broke the story of Congress effectively legalizing medical marijuana in the year-end spending bill (by defunding Justice Department enforcement of the federal ban on medical marijuana in states that have approved it) — the biggest change in marijuana law in 50 years.
