WASHINGTON, D.C. — Former Speaker of the House and 2012 presidential candidate Newt Gingrich appeared at a National Press Club Headliners Event on June 16th to discuss his new book, “Understanding Trump”.

In “Understanding Trump”, Gingrich shared what he learned from more than two years helping Donald J. Trump throughout his presidential campaign, during his transition from presidential candidate to Commander in Chief, and in his first few months in office. Gingrich provided a unique perspective on how the new president’s past experience as a business leader has shaped his political agenda and approach to governing the country.

The event featured a discussion with the author, an audience question-and-answer session, and a book signing.

• Sharyl Attkisson Brings “The Smear” to a National Press Club Headliners Book Event on August 31

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Former CBS News Correspondent Sharyl Attkisson, author of “The Smear: How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What You See, What You Think and How You Vote,” will appear at a National Press Club Headliners Book Event on Thursday, August 31 at 6:30 p.m. in the Club’s Conference Room.

Attkisson is The New York Times bestselling author of “Stonewalled,” a five-time Emmy Award winner, and the host of “Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson” offered by Sinclair. She is the recipient of the Edward R. Murrow Award for investigative reporting and has reported nationally for CBS News, PBS and CNN.

In “The Smear,” Attkisson reveals the world of opposition research and the dirty tricks those in power use to influence public opinion. Spin doctors and outside interests use a tactic known as “the Smear” to blindly influence the public, she writes, noting that there is an agenda by those pushing such fabricated stories.

The event will feature a discussion with the author, an audience question-and-answer session, and a book signing. Books will also be available for purchase at the event.

Proceeds from the two events would benefit the non-profit affiliate of the Club, the National Press Club Journalism Institute, which offers innovative, practical training to journalists and communications professionals working in a rapidly-changing media environment.

The National Press Club, the world’s leading professional organization for journalists, is located on the 13th Floor of the National Press Building at 529 14th St., NW, Washington, D.C.
