Publisher's Summary

Reporting on what you care about.

Nicholas Lemann, moderator. With Christiane Amanpour, Jon Lee Anderson, Katherine Boo, and Rich Lowry.

Nicholas Lemann has been a staff writer at The New Yorker since 1999 and currently writes the Wayward Press column for the magazine. He is the dean of Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. In his article "Fear and Favor", which appeared in the February 14th issue, he wrote about criticism of the media during the 2004 election.

Christiane Amanpour is CNN's chief international correspondent. Over the past 23 years, she has reported on most crises from the world's major conflict zones, including Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Israel, Pakistan, Somalia, Rwanda, and the Balkans. Her coverage of the Balkans, from 1991 to 1997, won, among other awards, a News and Documentary Emmy and two Peabody Awards.

Jon Lee Anderson has been a staff writer for The New Yorker since 1999. He is the author of The Lion's Grave: Dispatches from Afghanistan, Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life, Guerrillas, and, most recently, The Fall of Baghdad. His Profile of Hamid Karzai, the President of Afghanistan, appeared in the June 6th issue of the magazine.

Katherine Boo is a staff writer at The New Yorker. Her article "The Marriage Cure", on government-sponsored seminars to encourage marriage for the poor, received a National Magazine Award for Feature Writing last year. She received the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 2000 and was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2002.

Rich Lowry joined the National Review in 1992, after finishing second in the magazine's young-writers contest. In 1994, he moved to Washington to cover Congress, and in 1997, at the age of 29, he became editor-in-chief of the magazine. He is also a political analyst for Fox News and the author of Legacy: Paying the Price for the Clinton Years.
