David Corn, Takoma Park resident, Washington bureau chief for Mother Jones, and former DC editor for The Nation will be speaking at this Friends April Event.
David was named winner of the 2012 George Polk Award for his video and reporting on the "47 Percent Story" covering Mitt Romney’s meeting with donors during the 2012 presidential campaign. Mr. Romney’s casual declaration that 45 percent of the Americans who vote for Mr. Obama are "dependent upon government" and "pay no income tax" likely contributed to his loss of the 2012 Presidential election.
Corn has authored a number of books, among them, The Lies of George W. Bush, and Hubris: The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal, and the Selling of the Iraq War.
Refreshments will follow the talk and a question/answer period.
