Book Signing: “Confirmation Bias” by Carl Hulse of the New York Times with Paul Kane of the Washington Post
Thursday, July 25, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Carl Hulse, Chief Washington correspondent for The New York Times, discusses his new book, “Confirmation Bias,” with Paul Kane of The Washington Post.
The battle to fill the Supreme Court seat of Antonin Scalia, an outsized figure in life and in death, sparked a political clash decades in the making. Unleashing reverberations that will impact citizens for generations, it upended Senate norms, influenced the outcome of the last presidential election, injected partisanship into the high court, and eroded public trust in all three branches of government. Now, in “Confirmation Bias: Inside Washington’s War Over the Supreme Court, from Scalia’s Death to Justice Kavanaugh” (On Sale: June 25, 2019), Chief Washington correspondent for The New York Times Carl Hulse presents a revelatory look at a still-unfolding chapter in American history and the toxic dysfunction at its core.
In addition to more than three decades of reporting in the nation’s capital, he has also served as Washington editor and as the Chief Congressional Correspondent. He lives in Washington, D.C. For more information, please follow @hillhulse on Twitter.
Paul Kane has covered Congress since 2000, when he started at Roll Call with a beat focused on the Senate leadership agenda. He started with The Washington Post in 2007, covering topics such as the congressional response to the 2008 financial crisis and the Obama-Republican fiscal wars. He now writes a regular column on Congress and its interactions with the Trump administration.
