Politinerds: Andrew Malcom Returns
This past week’s episode of Politinerds featured our first return guest, Andrew Malcom, currently writing at Investors Business Daily and previously at The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, and several other publications over the years. We last had Andrew on nearly two months ago, and even an extended show didn’t give us enough time to get into the areas that Jazz Shaw and I wanted to cover. In this episode, we talk with Andrew about what it’s like to get nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, the Rolling Stone/UVA story and what it says about journalism today, and his time as a New York Times correspondent in Vietnam in the final months before the fall of Saigon (as well as a fascinating side story involving Times’ reporter Sidney Schanberg’s time in Cambodia, which became the basis for the Academy Award winning film The Killing Fields).
