Katy Tur, sometimes known as ‘Little Katy, third-rate reporter’, is an award-winning NBC News correspondent. She covered Donald Trump’s campaign from day one and quickly made an enemy of the future president.
Tur travelled to 40 states during the campaign and made more than 3,800 live TV reports. Trump didn’t appreciate her direct interview style or her scrupulous attention to facts, and took to singling her out at rallies. He repeatedly named her, called her ‘disgraceful’ and ‘not nice’ and encouraged his supporters to boo her.
Tur’s book, Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History, is about her bizarre, exhausting and sometimes frightening days on the campaign trail. It’s also about America’s increasingly hostile political landscape and about the established and shifting standards of Tur’s own chosen profession.
Hosted by Sally Warhaft, this indomitable journalist will discuss provocations, presidents and facing facts.
