Mark Leibovich, 57, is a journalist and author. Currently a staff writer at the The Atlantic, he previously spent a decade as the chief national correspondent for The New York Times Magazine, during which he was based in Washington, D.C. He’s known for his profiles of political and media figures. Leibovich’s latest book is Thank you for your Servitude, which asks why establishment Republicans failed to prevent a hostile takeover of their party by Donald Trump.
Quote: “To cover politics in Washington allows you to live in the very, very wide gap between what the actual truth is and how people are trying to manipulate the truth. They speak in the language of spin, obsequiousness, obfuscation. The meta of politics is just this endless source of material that can shed light on the psychology of the process.”
