How to Get Started in Journalism

Thursday, 28 April 2005

IOP Study Group:

Question the Questioner:
How to Get Started in Journalism

Ron Fournier, Chief Political Writer

This event is open to the public and off the record.

Ron Fournier. Much of what people know in Washington
is because of Ron Fournier. It's one of Washington's
secrets that most of what the "experts" opine on
television shows they know because on their way to the
studio they checked the Associated Press wire. The man
who writes much of the copy for that wire, especially
about who is coming and going in Washington, is
Fournier, who himself is too busy working to be on TV.
Political reporters for the top papers say it became a
joke during the Florida election battle that, no
matter where they went, Fournier had been there first.
