A longtime Democratic political insider, Bill Press challenges both political parties on their leadership and solutions to the nation's most pressing problems.
Bill Press is host of his own podcast, The Bill Press Pod. A senior political contributor for CNN, he attends the daily White House press briefing where he tweets live and writes a syndicated newspaper column distributed weekly by Tribune Media Services. For over two decades, Press has stood in the line of fire, debating heated national issues from a liberal perspective with his usual sense of humor and grace. Never shying away from controversy, Press tailors his talk to each audience and examines the news of the day including a look at Congress and the Trump Administration. He is the author of several books including The Obama Hate Machine: The Lies, Distortions and Personal Attacks on the President—And Who Is Behind Them (January 2012). In his book Buyer’s Remorse (February, 2016), he explores the Obama Administration and what was a disappointing presidency for many progressives. Press is the former chairman of the California Democratic Party and has received numerous awards for his work, including four Emmy Awards.
