Launched in May 1963, Novak’s column was the nation’s longest-running political column. It was also the most powerful. Columns by others may appear in more newspapers, but nobody has Novak’s clout.
Why? First, because he works so hard at it. He never stops. Until now, he never took a break. He had more sources, and better sources, than any other journalist.
His column was also so powerful because Bob Novak is much than just a political commentator. He’s an old-fashioned, deep-digging, relentless reporter. He never just gave his opinion. He reported news. And he often made news.
