No reporter cut through the media din of the 2016 presidential election quite like David Fahrenthold of The Washington Post. Remember the infamous Access Hollywood tape? That was one of Fahrenthold’s scoops, as were his exhaustive stories on Donald Trump’s questionable charitable activities. He joins us to discuss becoming an overnight sensation after 16 years on the job, getting called a “nasty guy” in a phone call with Donald Trump, and how he thinks journalists should cover Trump’s presidency. Plus, how he uses a mix of social media crowdsourcing and old-fashioned gumshoe reporting to break his stories.
