Yoder Public Affairs Lecture: "Covering the White House in an Age of Misinformation, Mistruths and Mistrust," Katie Rogers of The New York Times

Katie Rogers is a White House correspondent for The New York Times and has covered President Trump since his Inauguration Day. During that time, she has written extensively about the Trump administration's cultural impact on Washington and about the president's norm-bending approach to the office. She started at The Times in 2014. As a breaking news reporter based in New York, she contributed stories for every desk in the newsroom, including a project on the human toll of terror attacks, a profile of a Manhattan Christmas tree vendor, and a page one story on a Trump inauguration performer.

Her work in Washington has uncovered sexual harassment in Congress, including an exclusive story that led to the resignation of a congressman who used federal funds to settle a harassment suit. She also broke a story about the president's demand that all television stations aboard Air Force One be tuned to Fox News, and has written hundreds of features and profiles about the president, the first lady and assorted White House aides.

Born in South Bend, Ind., and raised in Elkhart, she is a native Hoosier. She holds a bachelor's degree from Loyola University Chicago and received her master's degree at Northwestern University.
