Mary McGrory

Mary McGrory (August 22, 1918 – April 20, 2004) was an American journalist and columnist.She specialized in American politics, and was noted for her detailed coverage of political maneuverings.

She wrote over 8,000 columns, but no books, and made very few media or lecture appearances.She was a fierce opponent of the Vietnam War and was on Richard Nixon's enemies list.

One reviewer said: McGrory is what you get when proximity to power, keen observation skills, painstaking reporting, a judgmental streak and passionate liberalism coalesce in a singularly talented writer — one whose abilities are matched by the times.
