By common consent one of America’s two or three greatest newspapers, The Washington Post is particularly celebrated for its coverage of American politics. Its opinion pages are home to some of America’s most prominent commentators, including George Will, Robert Novak, and Charles Krauthammer on the right, David Broder in the center, and E.J. Dionne, Jr., and Harold Meyerson on the left. Meyerson began his weekly (usually Wednesday) column there in March of 2003, just as the Iraqi War was beginning.
In September, 2009 Atlantic Monthly named Harold Meyerson one of 50 Most Influential Columnists. Calling its list “its all-star team,” Atlantic Monthly’s Top 50 are the most influential commentators in the nation – the columnists and bloggers and broadcast pundits who shape the national debates. Harold Meyerson is honored to be in their midst.
