Howard Kurtz joined The Post in 1981, and began covering the Justice Department during the first Reagan term. He was the New York bureau chief during the late 1980s, writing about the Koch administration, the homeless and the ever-expanding empire of tycoon Donald Trump, among other topics. After his stint in New York, Kurtz became The Post's media reporter, chronicling the journalism industry and second-guessing his colleagues. He is the author of "Spin Cycle: Inside the Clinton Propaganda Machine" (Touchstone Books, 1998) and "Hot Air: All Talk All the Time" (Basic Books, 1997). Kurtz also hosts CNN's "Reliable Sources," which airs on Saturdays at 6:30 p.m. EDT and Sundays at 11:30 a.m. EDT.
