The Chicago Tribune has dubbed him “America’s new past master.”
New York Times columnist with an international perspective. Cohen was a foreign correspondent for more than a decade before becoming acting foreign editor on Sept. 11, 2001, and foreign editor of the New York Times six months later.
Mr. Cohen has written several books including: “Hearts Grown Brutal: Sagas of Sarajevo,” an account of the wars of Yugoslavia’s destruction, co-authored a biography of Gen. H.

David Frum is a senior editor at the Atlantic and the author of nine books, including the New York Times bestseller The Right Man. From 2001 to 2002, he served as a speechwriter and special assistant to President George W. Bush. Frum’s latest book is Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic, in which he argues that the presidency has been limited not by law but by tradition, propriety, and public outcry, all now weakened as the tenets and accepted practices of American democracy have been damaged.
Dana Perino currently serves as co-host of FOX News Channel’s “The Five” and anchors “The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino.” While at the network, Perino has contributed to live top-rated election and political coverage.
