About Us

An exceptional journalist may be honored with one Pulitzer Prize in a long career. Thomas Friedman has already received three: two for International Reporting and a third for Commentary. Over the years, he has covered a coup in Turkey, the Iran-Iraq War, the civil war in Lebanon, the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, and terror attacks in Israel and America. He joined The New York Times in 1981 as a business reporter. Since then he has served as Bureau Chief in Lebanon and Israel, Chief White House Correspondent and Chief Economics Correspondent. He is now the paper's Foreign Affairs Columnist. Television audiences know him from his frequent appearances on current affairs programs, including the PBS News Hour, Face the Nation and Charlie Rose. His book on the turbulent Middle East, Beirut to Jerusalem, won the National Book Award in 1989. His international bestseller, The Lexus and the Olive Tree, has been called "the best book ever written on globalization." In his 2005 bestseller The World is Flat, Friedman contends that developing technology is creating a level playing field in the international economy.
