NYT’s Bumiller goes from politics to the Pentagon

Daily Northwestern
What now for Times reporter Elisabeth Bumiller? “I’ll be taking some time off [after covering the McCain campaign] and then will be covering the Pentagon.” Nomaan Merchant asks about her favorite campaign story. “I think it was McCain’s tour of America’s ‘forgotten places’ this past spring. The stories didn’t get much play, but we went to places I have never been before on a Republican political campaign – Selma, Ala., the town in Appalachia where LBJ declared his war on poverty, and the lower 9th Ward of New Orleans.”
