Hotline Profiles Nagourney

From its “Friday Feature“:

    Adam Nagourney has been the nat’l pol. corr. for the New York Times since ’96. He first covered the Bob Dole’s ’96 WH campaign. In ’97, he returned to NYC as the metropolitan pol. reporter and covered the NYC mayoral race. He also covered Hillary Clinton’s SEN run and the ’02 NY GOV race. But today he’s our Friday Feature:

    What was your first job?

    Making fishamajigs at McDonalds on the Boston Post Road in Mamaroneck, New York. I was fired after I think two weeks by some guy name George who I still hate. I think it was one of the most formative episodes of my life, career-wise; I’m still fearful of getting that walk back to the parking lot on a cold December night. Not kidding; ask my editor.

    What’s your most embarrassing on-the-job moment? (Or as embarrassing as you’d like to reveal?)

    Google Gardner and Nagourney. …

    If you could have any other job besides the one you have now, what would it be?

    I want that McDonald’s job back.
