ABC News

Jonathan Karl is ABC News' chief Washington correspondent and chief White House correspondent.

In "Front Row at the Trump Show," Karl brings us into the White House in a powerful book unlike any other on the Trump administration. He’s known and covered Donald Trump longer than any other White House reporter. With extraordinary access to Trump during the campaign and at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Karl delivers essential new reporting and surprising insights.

Jessica Yellin is the former chief White House correspondent for CNN and an Emmy and Gracie Award- winning political journalist for CNN, ABC News, and MSNBC.

And now Jessica takes pen to paper with her new book "Savage News," a searing and at-times laugh-out-loud funny depiction of contemporary politics and the media that reports on it.

In the novel, we meet Natalie, along with her scrappy production team, who has to navigate ratings wars, workplace sexual harassment and an international political crisis in order to prove herself. But the closer she gets to achieving her dream job, the more she wonders if it is worth all the compromise.
