Biography

Jeff Birnbaum is an award-winning author, television commentator, and a columnist for the Washington Post. He joined the Post in March 2004, after spending seven years as the chief of Fortune magazine's Washington bureau, and two years as a senior political correspondent for Fortune's sister publication, TIME. Before he worked for TIME, Jeff Birnbaum was with the Wall Street Journal for 16 years, where his last job there was as White House correspondent; while with the Journal he won the Aldo Beckman Award for Excellence in feature writing. On television, he is a political analyst for Fox News Channel and is a regular panelist on PBS' Washington Week.

At the Post, Jeff Birnbaum pens a column, "K Street Confidential," every other week and writes features about the intersection of business and politics. Previously, as Fortune's senior writer in D.C., he authored the magazine's "Power 25 Survey" that assessed which lobbying groups have the most clout in the Capital. Washingtonian magazine recently selected him as one of Washington's "50 best and most influential journalists."

In 1992, Jeff Birnbaum's second book, The Lobbyists, was a Washington Post best seller. Madhouse, his third book, about President Clinton's White House, was published in 1996.
