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.

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."
