Journalist Richard Wolffe Plans New Obama Book

67422_wolffe_richard.gifJournalist Richard Wolffe hopes to publish a second book about President Barack Obama, a “fly-on-the-wall” glimpse of the presidency tentatively entitled, “30 Days: A Portrait of the White House at Work.”

The book would follow Wolffe’s (pictured via, photo by Charles Ommanney) recent title, “Renegade: The Making of a President.” According to The New Republic, Wolffe’s ICM agent Kristine Dahl explained that the proposal is one of a few Obama-related ideas being considered by the journalist. Wolffe frequently appears on MSNBC news shows like Countdown with Keith Olbermann and Hardball, and recently came under fire for not disclosing his work for the PR firm, Public Strategies.

Here’s more from Politico: “Salon’s Glenn Greenwald wrote critically of his dual roles—an issue reported on by POLITICO in June. MSNBC admitted to erring by not disclosing Wolffe’s day job to the audience… [the book proposal] calls more attention to the same conflict of interest—what does Wolffe do for Public Strategies and who is he representing, while at the same time, talking politics on cable and meeting with Obama administration officials?”
