In conversation with California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, Twitter: @GavinNewsom
The New York Times's Mark Leibovich, presents a blistering, penetrating and jaw-dropping look at Washington's incestuous "media industrial complex." What keeps the permanent government spinning on its carousel, Leibovich asserts, is the freedom of shamelessness, and that mother's milk of politics: cash. What Julia Phillips did for Hollywood, Timothy Crouse did for journalists, and Michael Lewis did for Wall Street, Leibovich does for our nation's capital. He will sit down with Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom to take us inside the absurdity of the Beltway.
