The convergence of journalism and think-tanking

A shout out to our colleague Mary Newsom, who helped us think through the “convergence of journalism and think-tanking” in the 21st century. We love you.

This is a big week for us. We will be at the Knight-Lenfest Newsroom Initiative and then in DC later this week for the Civvys!

The House and the Senate convene at 10am.
