Journalist Molly Ivins.
Journalist Molly Ivins from Austin, Texas. She calls herself a "dripping fangs liberal," and believes that by being objective journalists take all the color out of human affairs. She says, "politics ought to be covered the way sports is, as a celebration of heroes and villians." She's taken on Ron and Nancy Reagan, George Bush, and the "bubbas" in the Texas Legislature. She's been a reporter for 25 years, for the "Texas Observer," "The New York Times." IVINS has also been contributor to the "MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour," and a columnist for the "Dallas Times Herald." A new best-of-Ivins-collection has just been published, "Molly Ivins Can't Say That, Can She?" (Random House).
