Secret Lives of CNN Journalists

A recent Washingtonian article, Journalists' Secret Lives, by Patrick W. Gavin and Jonathan E. Kaplan featured a few familiar CNN journalists. Here are a few excerpts from the article:

Days spent chasing lawmakers on the Capitol’s marble floors can be a challenge, especially for women. The hard marble puts pressure on knees and backs and even makes for slips. What’s the footwear of choice for congressional correspondents?

CNN congressional correspondent Jessica Yellin prefers clogs because they’re good for posture and are more attractive than many other ergonomically friendly shoes. Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times favors Dansko’s comfy shoes.

Sure, they may hunker down with the latest book on Iraq after a hard day’s work, but journalists also indulge in their share of guilty pleasures, many involving junk food, TV, or both.

CNN’s Ed Henry likes nothing more than watching HBO’s Entourage or Curb Your Enthusiasm with a big bowl of ice cream.

After Deadline

They may not transform themselves as dramatically as Clark Kent, but many Washington journalists have alter egos, pursuing hobbies and passions far outside their line of work.

CNN’s John Roberts fell in love with motorcycles as a kid—he tried making one by attaching a lawn-mower engine to his bicycle. It worked. Years later, Roberts is the proud owner of two Harley-Davidsons.


Jeffrey Toobin will appear on PBS's Tavis Smiley on Friday, November 2, 2007.

Lou Dobbs will appear on Late Night with Conan O'Brien on Tuesday, November 6, 2007 to promote his new book, Independents Day: Awakening the American Spirit
