The Edwards Media Fellows Program allows print and broadcast media professionals to spend time in residence at the Hoover Institution. Media fellows have the opportunity to exchange information and perspectives with Hoover scholars through seminars and informal meetings and with the Hoover and Stanford communities in public lectures. As fellows, they have the full range of research tools Hoover offers available to them. More than 100 of the nation’s top journalists have visited the Hoover Institution recently, interacting with Hoover fellows on key public policy issues. They include

  • Dan LeDuc, Washington Post (in residence February 1-5)
  • Richard Starr, Weekly Standard (January 25-29)
  • Scott Johnson, Power Line (blog) (January 25-29)
  • Melanie Kirkpatrick, Wall Street Journal (January 18-22)
  • Elizabeth Harper, NewsHour with Jim Lehrer (January 18-22)
