Martin Tolchin - Politics, Journalism, and the Way Things Were: My Life at the Times, the Hill, and Politico

Upcoming Event
Saturday, February 22, 2020 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Tolchin’s forty-year career at The New York Times was split almost evenly between New York, where he served as City Hall Bureau Chief, and Washington, where he covered Congress and the White House. In this candid and upbeat memoir, Tolchin, who in 1994 co-founded The Hill, recounts stories of the major events and figures he covered as well as giving an illuminating insider’s account of the evolution of political journalism from mostly all-male, smoke-filled newsrooms to the high-tech world of the 24/7 news cycle. Emphasizing journalism’s impact on history and politics, Tolchin counters today’s negativity over fake news with an inspiring portrait of the role of free speech to guide a free nation.
