NEW YORK, June 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The National ENQUIRER today announced that renowned Author and Political Commentator Dick Morris would be joining the magazine in the role of Chief Political Commentator & Correspondent. The appointment of Morris to the editorial team further establishes The ENQUIRER as one of the leading voices of this political season.
"Adding Dick Morris to one of the best editorial teams in the industry underscores our commitment to investigative journalism," said AMI Chief Content Officer and Editor In Chief of the ENQUIRER Dylan Howard. "He greatly values our commitment to delivering the kind of quality content that our readers have come to trust us for and, like The ENQUIRER, has the guts to publish stories other media won't touch."
In addition to providing exclusive news and analysis for the weekly print edition of The National ENQUIRER, Morris will also provide regular columns and video commentary for NationalEnquirer.com. The ENQUIRER's website has seen a surge into traffic too. In the most recent MPA Magazine Media 360° Brand Audience Report for April, The ENQUIRER ranked third in Mobile Web growth behind American Media, Inc.'s STAR, with an incredible 230% growth.
"The National Enquirer is one of the few journalistic outlets that has the courage to publish the truth," said Mr. Morris. "As this critical election approaches, I am thrilled to have a perch from which to tell the unvarnished truth, particularly about Hillary Clinton -- facts other publications just don't print because it doesn't fit."
Morris first came to national attention when he provided the strategy that engineered Bill Clinton's stunning comeback re-election victory in 1996, rescuing his presidency after he had lost control of Congress in 1994. Called "the most influential private citizen in America" by Time Magazine, Morris steered Clinton back toward the center and was a key player in the Clinton Administration initiatives that balanced the budget, cut taxes, and reformed welfare.
He has handled the winning campaigns of more than thirty Senators and Governors. Internationally, he has piloted the successful campaigns of the president or prime minister of twelve foreign countries including Mexico (twice), Colombia, Argentina, Uruguay, Kenya, Spain, Hungary, Poland, Ukraine, Guyana, Taiwan, and Japan.
In addition to being one of the foremost political commentators today, he, with his wife Eileen McGann, has authored seventeen books, including thirteen New York Times best-sellers.
