John Nichols is one of the most respected voices in Washington when the subject is politics and the media. And in Washington, when isn’t there discussion on politics and the media? Mr. Nichols is the associate editor of The Capital Times (Madison, WI) and is the author of seven books on politics and the media. He writes about electoral politics and public policy for The Nation magazine, and is a contributing writer for The Progressive and In These Times. You’ll find his articles appearing regularly in the Chicago Tribune and the New York Times.
On his way to Fargo as the featured speaker for the North Dakota Human Rights Coalition Summit, I had the opportunity to catch up with Nichols and discuss a wide range of topics spanning human rights, the upcoming presidential election and the evolving role, for better or for worse, of the media in our culture.
