Publisher's Summary

Our guest is Amanda Terkel, the senior political reporter and politics managing editor at the Huffington Post. She discusses her recent appearance at the Netroots Nation Annual Conference. She spoke on a panel titled “Political Opponents Caught on Tape.” She provides examples of politicians who have had to account for their controversial remarks, often captured on video and shown on the Huffington Post website, among others.

She cites the infamous “47 percent” video of 2012 Presidential candidate Mitt Romney as an example of the type of video which can influence the public opinion of a politician. Terkel talks about her transition from progressive blogger at the Center for American Progress to her current job as a Huffington Post reporter. She discusses the Huffington Post’s strategy in covering politics, and speaks to how exciting it is to be reporting on today’s political environment.

She describes growing up as an adopted child born in Korea and raised in a small upstate New York town by a Christian mother and a Jewish father. She suggests that this has given her a unique perspective on covering political issues. She explains why she moved into the field of journalism and what got her interested in politics early in her life. [Broadcast Date: August 25, 2013]
