Page, “USA Today’s” DC bureau chief, mainly covers politics so we wanted to know how she got the interview with the most talked-about media personality of the past few weeks.
“Better to ask Ann Curry why she chose USA TODAY for this interview,” Page says. “My experience with people in the news, in politics and elsewhere, is that they are drawn to USA TODAY’s national reach and our reputation for fairness.”
Page also says her relationship with DC power lawyer Bob Barnett, who represented Curry during negotiations, helped. “I have done some interviews with political authors represented by Bob Barnett, and I believe Bob suggested my name.”
