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.
