DCNewsers In Profile: Greta, Andrea, Jake

  • greta_indecisiongameFNC’s Greta Van Susteren has been deemed one of the 100 most powerful women in the world by Forbes, the only on-air journalist on the list: “As the longest-running cable news anchor in the U.S., Van Susteren has managed to keep On the Record as the No. 1 show in its time slots for more than a decade.” Angela Merkel is #1, Michelle Obama is #8, Oprah Winfrey is #14.

  • NBC’s Andrea Mitchell talks with the Washingtonian about how she got into news: “I was an English major and a violinist at the University of Pennsylvania, and the radio station needed someone. I covered politics for the Ivy League radio network, which led to an internship at NBC’s local affiliate.”

  • CNN’s Jake Tapper talks with AdWeek about his political beliefs: “I don’t believe in inefficient government; I don’t believe in wasting money, but I don’t assume that people come to my show because they want to see their worldview affirmed. We’re looking to have a cafeteria of ideas.”
