INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE
Paula Reid is a CBS News White House Correspondent based in Washington, D.C. Reid’s reporting is featured across all CBS News broadcasts and platforms. Before being named a White House correspondent in 2019, Reid covered the justice beat for CBS News. She provided extensive reporting on the Justice Department and led the network’s coverage of special counsel Robert Mueller and major developments related to the Mueller probe.
Her exchanges during White House briefings have frequently made news, such as when the White House revealed that President Trump believes he can fire the Special Counsel and during the Covid 19 pandemic. She reports across all CBS platforms including CBS Evening News, CBS This Morning, Face the Nation, CBSN and CBS News Radio.
François Clemenceau stated his opinion on the debate with the following words: “Frankly, I have never seen something like this debate, nothing at all. […] What we watched on this debate is not democracy as we practice it in Europe and this is not America as we think we love America.”
“I come back again to that great uncertainty in this race, which is the process of turning out,” said Anthony Salvanto, about the postal voting system – which seems to be understood better by Republicans than Democrats.”
“When asked about potential long-lasting damage done to the democratic institutions, Paula Reid commented: “He [Trump] is a symptom of some problems we have here in the US, particularly hyper-partisanship, racial tensions, economic disparity. I don’t think he’s the one who came in and caused all these problems […] in his own way he’s just setting new standards.”
