Marc Ambinder’s Personal Journey in the ‘Fat Nation’

BY Hari Sreenivasan  April 16, 2010 at 3:43 PM EDT

Marc Ambinder and I worked together at ABC News for a few years. He was one of the rising stars in their political unit, and has since moved through National Journal’s Hotline and now is planted firmly at The Atlantic. He also consults for CBS News (where I used to be a correspondent as well).

Ambinder is usually someone I would turn to for political insight and analysis but this time we spoke about a subject which is far more personal and important to him: obesity in America. You’ll see why in our interview.

Here is his cover story for the Atlantic: Fat Nation.
