Emily Bazelon’s New York Times Magazine Cover Story: Elizabeth Warren is Serious About Change—and Presidency.

The 2020 Presidential Race is densely packed with contenders. Journalist and Lavin Speaker Emily Bazelon explores the legitimacy of one of the Democratic Party’s most visible candidatesElizabeth Warrenin her cover story for the New York Times Magazine.

Who can beat Donald Trump in 2020? That is the question on many people’s lips as the election draws nearer. With such a tightly packed race to the democratic primary, it’s anyone’s game. But one candidate’s star is steadily rising: Elizabeth Warren. In her New York Times Magazine cover story “Elizabeth Warren is Completely Serious,” Emily Bazelon chronicles the senator’s political journeyand transformationinto serious presidential contender.

 

“For her entire career, Warren’s singular focus has been the growing fragility of America’s middle class,” Bazelon writes. “She made the unusual choice as a law professor to concentrate relentlessly on data, and the data that alarms her shows corporate profits creeping up over the last 40 years while employees’ share of the pie shrinks.” In her intruiging and thorough profile, Bazelon expertly illustrates Warren’s platform today: centered on income inequality, corporate power, and corrupt politics.

 

Emily Bazelon is a staff writer for The New York Times and the author of the recently released Charged: The New Movement to Transform American Prosecution and End Mass Incarceration.
