Radio: Sexual Harassment At Cato, Rob Porter, And The Making Of Politico’s Playbook

Politico’s Daniel Lippman gives an inside look at his reporting on Cato’s Ed Crane and the work that goes into the Politico Playbook newsletter each day.


Daniel Lippman is a Politico reporter and co-author of the Politico Playbook newsletter. Lippman appears on this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour to discuss his story on the sexual misconduct of ex-Cato president Ed Crane, as well as the behind-the-scenes of writing “Playbook” each morning.

“I had never done a #metoo or sexual harassment story before and you put yourself in the shoes of these women who’ve had these things happen to them…or being preyed upon by powerful men,” he said. “So you get a sense of the difficulties of being a woman professional but also you feel the sense of responsibility to do more of these stories.”

Later in the hour, Lippman and Domenech discuss the Obamas’ official portraits and the art that comes out of a presidency.
