  • 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.

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.”
