Gossip is easy, politics is hard.
I'm surprised and disappointed in American culture.
The constant variety is the most interesting part of my job.
Knowing policy does help make the gossip more understandable.
Caring about policy is important - people in washington forget.
I've been told I'm a player, but people still don't always return my calls.
It's nice to know about something as soon as it happens, and obviously a newspaper can't provide that.
For the last year I've been at Stanford University as a student and I've had time to read the newspaper.
At NBC I wasn't really sure if the grandparents were going to get my sense of humor on a particular topic.
In the New York Times, you're going to get completely different information than you would in the USA Today.
