Maureen Dowd to speak at UT
Dowd is a winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary, became a columnist on The New York Times op-ed page in 1995 after having served as a correspondent in the paper's Washington bureau since 1986. She has covered four presidential campaigns and served as White House correspondent.
Some fellow SPJ members and I are attending the event, and if I'm lucky I'll be able to check out a laptop and blog the event.
The Austin Chronicle had a really good Q&A with her. She talked about blogging, "the incestuous nature of insider reporting, Judy "Miss Run Amok" Miller, and the nanny presidency."
John Kelso at the Austin American-Statesman also had some commentary on her book "Are Men Necessary?"
I'm glad you're thinking about blogging her speech! I can't go, but I'd like to read your rendition of what she says.
