He covered some of the most important political events of our time, including Canadian federal elections, the free-trade discussions, the failed Meech Lake Accord(his coverage won the parliamentary bureau a Gemini Award), the U.S. presidential elections, State of the Union addresses and the state funeral of Ronald Reagan. Newman started out as a print and broadcast journalist in Winnipeg and Regina, then moved to Toronto to join The Globe and Mail before joining the Globe bureau in 1969. In 1971, he joined the CTV parliamentary bureau and in 1972 became CTV’s first Washington correspondent.

In 1989, he helped launch CBC Newsworld, hosting the daily show Capital Report. Inviting readers beyond the broadcast, Don Newman offers his valuable insights on the formative events of the last forty years. Review "Don Newman is a master of the political interview. Dogged and brilliant. Nobody can eviscerate a cabinet minister's spin like Don. I miss Don on TV and I miss the fear in a politician's eyes when they realized he was going to hold their feet to the fire." — RICK MERCER "Don Newman is like a walking, talking political history book of Canada." — DON MARTIN, Host of Powerplay "From Trudeau to Harper, from Nixon to Obama, Don Newman is one of the great political storytellers of our time. He's seen it all, now he tells it all." — PETER MANSBRIDGE "Don Newman, I consider a journalistic national treasure." — JOHN CROSBIE, former Progressive Conservative cabinet minister Praise for DON NEWMAN: “A shining example of responsible journalism and . . . a role model for integrity in reporting.” —LLOYD AXWORTHY About the Author DON NEWMAN is the Chairman of Canada 2020, a non-partisan forum to further the political, social and economic well-being of Canadians.
