David Remnick, the editor of The New Yorker since 1998, began his career at the Washington Post, in 1982. He is the author of several books, including The Bridge, King of the World, Resurrection, and Lenin's Tomb, for which he received both the Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction and a George Polk Award for excellence in journalism. He became a staff writer at The New Yorker in 1992 and has since written more than two hundred pieces for the magazine. In 2015, he debuted as the host of the national radio program and podcast, "The New Yorker Radio Hour," which airs weekly. Under Remnick's leadership, The New Yorker has become the country's most honored magazine, with a hundred and ninety-two National Magazine Award nominations and fifty-three wins. In 2016, it became the first magazine to receive a Pulitzer Prize for its writing, and now has won six, including the gold medal for public service.
"A must read for politics watchers...Remnick provides useful context, while committee member Jamie Raskin adds recommendations to the report, including direct election of presidents and abolition of the Electoral College in order to 'break out of the GOP's matrix of democracy suppression.'"
