ELECTION 2024 Update

New York Times best-selling author and political journalist breaks down the forthcoming election from top to bottom.

The Reporter and the Flack

Political journalist and co-author of the #1 New York Times best seller, Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign, Amie Parnes, teams up with veteran political consultant and MSNBC Political Analyst, Susan Del Percio to discuss the challenges in covering the Trump White House and more. In an environment where the President of the United States calls the press “the enemy of the people” how do reporters respond? Or do they? What is the responsibility of elected officials to defend a free press, a pillar of our democracy? With all political norms all but gone, the relationships between reporters and political operatives are more strained than ever. How do political flacks build trust with reporters and vice versa? Do these flacks have any credibility? And in an increasingly contentious political environment, how do these two sides come together? Amie Parnes and Susan Del Percio offer an insider’s perspective on how they manage these issues day to day, and what they see as the biggest challenges as the midterms and the 2020 presidential election inch closer.


Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency

The inside story of the historic 2020 presidential election and Joe Biden’s harrowing ride to victory, from the #1 New York Times bestselling authors of Shattered, the definitive account of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

Almost no one thought Joe Biden could make it back to the White House—not Donald Trump, not the two dozen Democratic rivals who sought to take down a weak front-runner, not the mega-donors and key endorsers who feared he could not beat Bernie Sanders, not even Barack Obama. The story of Biden’s cathartic victory in the 2020 election is the story of a Democratic Party at odds with itself, torn between the single-minded goal of removing Donald Trump and the push for a bold progressive agenda that threatened to alienate as many voters as it drew.
