Introduction by Clayton Lopez, Key West City Commissioner
Mr. Robinson explores the seeming elusiveness of “truth” in the media and its competing interpretations of “fact.” “How can we reach any kind of political consensus if we cannot agree on what happened yesterday, or what its impacts are today?”
Eugene Robinson is a columnist and associate editor of The Washington Post and a commentator for MSNBC. His twice weekly column on The Post’s Op-Ed page was launched in February 2005, and within a year it was being syndicated to more than 130 newspapers.
Robinson’s essays on politics, culture and events have helped shape the debate on issues such as the war in Iraq, the limits of presidential power and the rebuilding of the hurricane-ravaged Gulf Coast. He is a regular commentator on NBC’s award-winning “Meet the Press” and also appears frequently on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” “Morning Joe” and “The Rachel Maddow Show,” and has been a regular contributor to the network’s political coverage. In 2009, he won the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary – honored for columns he wrote about the presidential campaign and the election of President Barack Obama.
