Journalists Annie Karni ’00 and Ben Jacobs ’02 Share Election Insights


Just off the campaign trail, alumni Annie Karni ’00 and Ben Jacobs ’02 returned to campus today to share their insights on the 2016 election with students in Upper School history teacher Peter Warren’s American Elections class, followed by an open discussion and Q&A for students, faculty, and staff. 

Karni is a politics reporter for Politico and has been covering the Clinton campaign for the past 18 months. Jacobs is a politics reporter for The Guardian, and had been following several different candidates, but was most recently on the Trump campaign trail.

Among other topics, Karni and Jacobs discussed their reactions to the election results, the fate of political journalism, their experiences on the campaign trail, and the use of social media in this particular campaign season.
