NY Times Reporter to Speak at WSU

OGDEN, Utah – The chief Washington correspondent for the New York Times will speak about his experiences covering the White House at a presentation at Weber State University on Oct. 26 at noon in the Wattis Business Building Smith Lecture Hall.

David Sanger, who joined the New York Times staff as a business reporter in the early 1980s, is one of the newspaper's senior writers. In a 25-year career at the paper, he has reported from New York, Tokyo and Washington, covering a wide variety of issues surrounding foreign policy, globalization, nuclear proliferation, Asian affairs and, for the past five years, the George W. Bush presidency. Twice he has been a member of Times reporting teams that won the Pulitzer Prize. He also appears regularly on national public affairs and news shows, including a recent appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press."
During his presentation, Sanger will focus on his experiences covering the White House in the midst of a controversial war.
The event, which is free and open to the community, is sponsored by the Office of the Provost.
