The two-time Pulitzer Prize awardee has been with the New York Times since 2002, and, previous to that was with the Associated Press for 15 years and United Press International for 4 years. He has covered every president since Reagan, has been witness to countless historical events, and has gotten to know each president personally. In 2001, he was one of the few members of the press on board Air Force One with President Bush after the tragedy of 9/11.
