David S. Bernstein
David S. Bernstein is an award-winning journalist with more than 25 years experience reporting, analyzing, and commenting on politics, public policy, and a range of topics. He has been a WGBH News columnist and contributor since 2013.
Bernstein's Talking Politics column for WGBH News regularly breaks new stories, and provides unique analysis, about politics and policy relevant to Bostonians--whether the action takes place in City Hall, at the State House, around New England, in the halls of Washington, or across the country.
The column is followed closely by those on the inside of Massachusetts politics, and by more than 30,000 followers on social media. The reach of Bernstein's Twitter presence led the Boston Globe, using an algorithm developed by former Harvard researchers, to rank him as the single most influential media figure in state politics on that platform, during the 2014 election cycle.
His awards include Journalist Of The Year from the New England Press Association, and Excellence In Criminal Justice Reporting from John Jay College of Criminal Justice. He has appeared multiple times on CNN and MSNBC, among other networks, providing political analysis.
