A senior correspondent for Time magazine, Michael Weisskopf is a Pulitzer
Prize finalist and winner of the George Polk Award, Goldsmith Award for
Investigative Reporting, National Headliners Award, and the Daniel Pearl Award
for Courage and Integrity in Journalism. As an investigative reporter for the

letter of FBI whistle-blower Coleen Rowley and broke stories on Arthur
Andersen's shredding of Enron documents, President Bill Clinton's deal with
prosecutors and several Monica Lewinsky stories.
In addition to Blood Brothers, he is co-author of two books: Truth At Any Cost, a book on the Kenneth Starr probe published in April of 2000, and Tell Newt to Shut Up, a book about the 1995 Republican revolution in congress, published in 1996.
He joined Time in 1997 after 20 years at the Washington Post where he covered money in politics, the environment and the Pentagon. Fluent in Chinese, he was the paper's correspondent in China from 1980 to 1985 and covered the hostage crisis in Iran in 1979 and 1980. Prior to joining the Post, Weisskopf covered politics and government for The Baltimore Sun; and before that he worked at The Montgomery Advertiser in Montgomery, Alabama. He received his Master of Arts from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and his Bachelors degree from George Washington University. He lives in Washington with his wife Rebekah, a professional singer, and their three children.
