Noted journalist and best-selling author Evan Thomas is well-known to viewers of the Washington public affairs show “Inside Washington,” which ceased production in 2013. He has worked for Time magazine, and has been editor-at-large at Newsweek since 2006. His book “The War Lovers: Roosevelt, Lodge, Hearst and the Rush to Empire” was called an “engrossing history” by The New York Times. His other books include “Ike’s Bluff: President Eisenhower’s Secret Battle to Save the World,” “The Very Best Men: The Daring Early Years of the CIA” and his newest biography, “Being Nixon: A Man Divided” (Random House).
