Ronald Brownstein
Political Analyst & Author

Part historian/part journalist, Ron Brownstein explains the complexities of American politics with lucid precision as a senior editor for The Atlantic, a Contributing Editor for National Journal, and a senior political analyst for CNN. His sharp analysis on politics, policy, the electorate, media, healthcare, and a range of issues are informed by his strong sense of American political and national history. Twice a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, Brownstein is author or editor of seven books, including “Rock Me on the Water: 1974 - The Year Los Angeles Transformed Movies, Music, Television, and Politics.”
