Embeds: Reporters Revitalizing Political Journalism


by GU Politics

On Monday, January 30th, we hosted the co-creators of the "Embeds" show, and Georgetown alum, Scott Conroy (COL '05) and GU Politics Board Member and Head of News at Snapchat, Peter Hamby (COL '03), along with real-life embeds from the 2016 campaign trail to discuss what life is really like as an embed on the trial, and the extent to which the show captures the reality of covering a political campaign.

The panel discussion was moderated by Robert Draper, writer for New York Times Magazine, contributor at National Geographic, and author of Dead Certain: The Presidency of George W. Bush. Other panelists included: Jackie Alemany (White House reporter, CBS News), Sopan Deb (Culture reporter, The New York Times), and Ruby Cramer (Political reporter, BuzzFeed News).
