Emily Lazar: The Most Important Media Insider You've Never Heard Of

Emily_lazar_colbert_report She books guests onto the Colbert Report, giving airtime to education types more often than most other shows. But that's just part of it. 

She also shares ideas with Newsweek columnist Jonathan Alter, who writes frequently about education. He's her husband. 

She's Emily Jane Lazar.  Between the two of them, she's got influence over a whole lot of eyeballs. 

Now if only she could get Colbert to ask better questions when he gets education guests on the show.  I'm available!

Thanks to an eagle-eyed reader for making the connection.    

PS:  I call bullshit on Levin's claim that KIPP actively helps the larger public school community.
