David Corn Speaking Topics

  • National Security in the 21st Century

    As the author of a book on the CIA and the co-author of a best-selling book on the Iraq War (Hubris: The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal, and the Selling of the Iraq War), speaker David Corn is an expert on major national security issues. He has long debated and discussed on television, in print, and in public appearances the war on terrorism, the Iraq War, the Afghanistan War, the use of torture, and other national security issues. He can also cover the importance of climate change to national security issues.

  • What's the State of the American News Media?

    Is the American news media too liberal or too conservative? Speaker David Corn, a longtime veteran of the media wars, offers a unique view of the media. The Washington press corps, he argues, is neither too far to the left or too far to the right: it is too biased toward official Washington. He will explain how the national media gets the story right • and how it gets it wrong. (His book, Hubris, was a behind-the-scenes account of how the Bush administration brought the country into the Iraq War • and how the media failed to cover that story.) He can also discuss how the news media are changing • or failing to change • in these days of economic downturn and Internet upheaval.

  • What's Going to Happen in the 2014 & 2016 Elections?

    Using his years of expertise, speaker David Corn can dissect the coming congressional and presidential campaigns. He'll not only reveal who's up and who's down, he'll also survey the political landscape that lies ahead and tell you what to look for as dramatic elections approach. He can describe how he broke "47 percent" story in 2012 and how that dramatically affected the presidential race.

  • What's Right with the Left & What's Wrong with the Right?

    As a longtime progressive commentator who backs up his analysis with reporting, speaker David Corn can assess where both the left and the right are heading at the moment. Is the left on the rise? Is the right down and out? What's the long-term significance of the Tea Party? Can the Republican Party mount a comeback? Have modern politics moved beyond the traditional battles? Corn can both defend liberal values and accurately assess the political temperature of the nation.

  • What's the State of American Politics?

    Speaker David Corn has covered politics in Washington for over 25 years. He oversees a bureau of ten reporters and editors covering Washington. He writes on political developments and policy disputes • and he broke the "47 percent" story that influenced the 2012 presidential campaign. As a frequent guest on Hardball, The Rachel Maddow Show, CNN's Reliable Sources, NPR's "The Diane Rehm Show," and many other talk shows, he often discusses the news of the day or week. He can readily discuss or debate the ups and downs of the Obama administration, the Republican-controlled House, and the current state of Washington.
