The president and major well first of all good morning thanks for coming on as always.
-- -- great spirit here Connell McShane along with -- McDowell filling in for Imus this week majors or regular in the Imus in the morning program we said before you came on.
And you know we -- -- that you're one of the best in the business in terms of covering the news but yesterday you made some news of your own unfortunately for us announcing that you're leaving.
To go it's a National Journal right to back -- I think to the way you put his back to your roots in print journalism but -- and tell us about the move.
I think this stage of my career guys I turned 482 days ago so basically -- honestly pulled myself about a third of my career left.
And the first that are part of ask my career was as a print journalists this -- -- will be.
We'll have always been most motivated to be -- written three books I hope to write more books.
And there's the defense right now the print is that that the idea long form writing doesn't really matter anymore.
And I'd like to test that proposition because I think.
With technology we are bombarded by data or not always bombarded or at least even -- Healthy sampling of content and structure that separates.
We from the -- The important from the seemingly important and his National Journal and its inability there which is formidable in many respects is about anything.
It's -- to separate the importance on this seemingly important.
And they came to me and suggest that I think about this is -- so they've been on my mind while.
And I need to tell you we'll keep -- a good.
-- -- right now is that these things do and I found one and I molecular.
Making this its day to -- it's good to talk to you this is more of even a personal question coming from -- spending most of my career there.
How did TV how do you think it has made -- may be a better writer did it.
I would say TV media 88 short walk -- -- gestational work.
There's -- tremendous power and importance cable television.
Ailments and that when news breaks and in this important and the audience hungry -- you know historic.
If you know in the case a couple of presents what happened six months ago why what happened date is the -- -- -- relevant.
Born output of that and also very odd percent of what is happening next.
And -- thing.
Have a notebook and television and you can be extremely important audience and all I've tried great and that it.
That's our elders now on this.
You know it's interesting -- -- months of -- to talk about mineral get to remember we want about the president and and some of the issues but this is actually initial sting.
To -- business story in some ways because of how major framed it right at the beginning is that you know their bids this been so much written about the death of print journalism.
And here you are at Fox News at Fox News Channel which is the most successful cable.
News network in the country and is you know highly profitable and all the rest of it.
What about the financial end of it and the come -- long term outlook for print journalism and how do you win on that debate about.
Hey this is -- this -- that's declining.
Well you know my interest in the television was in the light.
Entered cable news in 2000 at CNN partner in the White House I wasn't looking for a television job and then tried to -- television job I was.
The US news and world report covered congress national politics and -- call them that they would you like to cover the White House was in there.
That's an unexpected and highly unique entry into this business.
There's something highly unusual and unique about this position that National Journal David Bradley -- Atlantic media.
Extremely well financed well -- -- absolutely devoted to the idea that people who could brighten things can get drenched in facts and implement and seeing ways.
-- space and time to do that and should be compensated so I am enormously proud and immensely.
Yeah like it is certainly a National Journal group -- -- -- if you got back back to his -- that's not true everywhere in this business this through very few places so.
Yes exactly proposition let me get on.
I'm not which.
-- pioneers here really -- not been an enormous risk that Marcus store.
That money is demonstrably different than -- -- but -- in life.
A lot and in my world a lot of -- fences armed inside fences were destroyed just you know.
My no we wish you the best everything tears your grade and knowing I guess we get as we could say under -- on behalf of Imus can't win and we don't speak on -- bonds now we never give them enough for gotta match but I still say I think he's gonna say -- just so Kamal on the multi zone.
I'm sure you want there's no question about that there's no question about that it is not I'm not leaving.
