Kirsten Powers        

NY Times Best-Selling Author; USA Today Columnist & CNN Political Analyst

USA Today columnist and CNN political analyst, Kirsten Powers brings a unique perspective to her commentary from her real-world experience working in politics and business.

She began her political career by answering phones for Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign, and following his win, joined the Clinton-Gore transition team. In 1993, she quickly moved through the ranks at the White House to become Deputy Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Public Affairs. After serving as America Online's Vice President of International Communications, Powers returned to politics as Press Secretary to Andrew Cuomo's 2002 governor's race before turning to political commentary and writing.

Powers previously worked at Fox News as a political analyst and contributor where she appeared regularly across the channel, including "Special Report with Bret Baier," "Fox News Sunday," "The Kelly File" and "The O’Reilly Factor." Powers provided 2008 election coverage from the primaries to the inauguration of President Barack Obama, the 2010 mid-term elections and 2012 GOP primary. Her writing has been published in the "Wall Street Journal," "USA Today," the "New York Observer," "The Daily Beast," "The New York Post," and "Elle magazine."

In 2015, she published her first book "The Silencing: How the Left is Killing Free Speech," which later went on to become a NY Times Best Seller.

Known for providing independent-minded analysis and insight on the cultural and political issues of the day, Powers pierces through partisan rhetoric and gives the honest analysis Americans desire in a political and media environment that has become increasingly divisive.
