For years the image of who drives change in our democracy has reflected an old narrative of straight white men in smoky rooms. 

The Beat DC blows through that trope. 

We’re the only daily political news platform that highlights the people of color driving policy in the nation’s capital and beyond, and the policies that impact communities of color at large. 

Connie Chung Penning a Memoir

Connie Chung Penning a Memoir

Connie Chung is working on a memoir about her life and work in journalism, according to Politico. The 71-year-old former anchor and reporter for CNN, MSNBC, and all three main broadcast networks said her book will detail some 'Me Too' moments. Back in February, the second woman to ever co-anchor a network newscast appeared with her husband Maury Povich on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, when a viewer asked her about sexual harassment. “Well, let me say for the record that anybody who sexually harassed me is now dead,” Chung replied. When Cohen followed up and asked if Chung ever felt harassed throughout her decades long career, Chung declared, “Oh yeah, sure, every day. I mean, a lot, especially when I started out.” The book will also touch on her parents' journey from China, her Chinese American upbringing, and the 'parallels' between the Watergate investigation and the Mueller investigation. More here.
