Asking for Truth from Power

There was a fair amount of press recently about the exchange between current Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and veteran journalist Mary Louise Kelly.  

At the time after I heard the exchange and the recount, I also recalled that earlier in the month Ms. Kelly had been in Iran, reporting there.    I thought at the time, Pompeo gave her a harder time than the Iranians did. 

I’ll just say this:  Ms. Kelly has a professional, balanced, and thorough approach to her job.  She is the consummate professional, in my opinion.  And I appreciate the work she does, and the way she does it.

Here’s the initial report from her interview with Pompeo:

And then here’s Kelly’s Op/Ed in the New York Times that followed.

Much respect. And THANK YOU.
