I have had the privilege of being interviewed by Francis on his radio program on FederalNewsRadio, and his ability to ask insightful questions and get important information to his audience is evident in this new medium and project. I look forward to future issues, and will be a loyal reader.
Francis has a special way of asking questions that don't come across as adversarial but that cut to the heart of the issue being discussed. He doesn't challenge an answer as much as he advances a conversation and he does it so smoothly that the technique is easy to overlook until you see it in written form.
DC Newsmakers is more than an anthology of interviews Francis has conducted. It is a significant contribution to the dialogue members of the political, policy, personnel and procurement community have with each other. It provides context and color to the decision-making process. It is a "must read" for those of us inside the Beltway and an even more important resource for those who live and work outside of Washington who want to understand how and why things happen the way they do.
With the rise of social media outlets that convey "news" in snippets, it is helpful that DC Newsmakers provides depth and original content unavailable elsewhere. And if the first issue is an indication of what is to come, there are a lot of us looking forward to the April edition.
With over four millions employees and a $4 trillion budget, the USG is the one of the largest and most complex entities in the world. What policies are set by its handful of leaders are important. How they are executed and who is executing them -- that's where the rubber meets the road. And, that is where DC Newspapers proves its value.
If you are government contractor trying to anticipate $600 billion per year in contracted USG work or someone who really wants to understand something beside glib headlines and grinding political axes, this is THE place to go.
Rose has those rare gifts of being able to translate jargon into English and to make the arcane seem crystal-clear.
