Leibovich began working for The New York Times in 2006 and in 2012 was named chief national correspondent for The New York Times Magazine. Previously, he had written for The Washington Post, The San Jose Mercury News, and The Boston Phoenix. In 2011, he won the National Magazine Award in the profile-writing category for his NYT Magazine article on Politico’s Mike Allen. In 2002, he published The New Imperialists: How Five Restless Kids Grew Up to Virtually Rule Your World, about the digital age empires of Bill Gates, Steve Case, Larry Ellison, John Chambers, and Jeff Bezos. He recently published This Town: Two Parties and a Funeral—Plus Plenty of Valet Parking!—in America’s Gilded Capital, a portrayal of the culture of vanity, greed, and corruption now grown to epidemic proportions in Washington. In an article adapted from his book and published in The New Republic, he summed up the meaning of This Town: “Washington may not serve the country well, but it works splendidly for Washington itself.”
