NULab Faculty Meg Heckman, professor of journalism, recently appeared as a guest on the What Works podcast (hosted by former Boston Globe editor Ellen Clegg and Northeastern faculty Dan Kennedy) to discuss her book, Political Godmother: Nackey Scripps Loeb and the Newspaper That Shook the Republican Party. Heckman, who has over a decade of experience as a reporter and has served as the digital editor at the Concord Monitor in New Hampshire, writes about Loeb’s impact as both a publisher and conservative activist. In her new book, Heckman draws a critical connection between Nackey Loeb’s support of Republican Patrick Buchanan in 1992 to the rise of the Trump administration a generation later.
