Who are Jennifer Granholm’s Favorite Journalists?

Jennifer Granholm is four months into her television career as host of “The War Room” on Current TV. The former Michigan governor talks to the Atlantic Wire about who else in the business she admires:

My favorite journalists are Christiane Amanpour, Maria Bartiromo, Rachel Maddow and the person everyone looks up to, Tim Russert, God rest his soul. I admire them all but I don’t really even pretend to be a journalist myself. I’m just an ex-governor hosting a show with an opinion. One of the challenges for me, that traditional journalists don’t really have, is interviewing people whom I agree with.  People know I’m a Democrat and I’m not going to hide what I believe. So playing devil’s advocate is a little difficult.
