Borger joined CNN in September 2007 with impressive Washington expertise and contacts that are reflected in her reported analysis. She has played an instrumental role in daily political coverage and CNN’s deadline reporting on a variety of topics, including the death of Osama bin Laden, the debt ceiling fight, and President Obama’s Afghanistan policy review. Borger also provides in-depth pieces and interviews for CNN, including a recent profile of Representative (and Vice Presidential hopeful) Paul Ryan.
Additionally, Borger writes a popular weekly column for CNN.com that also appears on Time.com. She played a key role in the network’s political coverage during the 2010 midterm elections, as well as “America Votes 2008” coverage, which earned the network a Peabody Award.
