NewsHour correspondent and Yale Corporation member Margaret Warner hard at work in the filing room on Saturday night.
MANCHESTER, N.H., 9:05 p.m. — Second pseudo-celebrity sighting of the night: Margaret Warner, a senior correspondent for The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, and, more importantly, a member of the elite Yale Corporation, the University’s highest governing body. (Unless it was another journalist who looks like Ms. Warner, and the long drive to Manchester is taking at toll on this reporter.) But, if that was really her, shouldn’t she be sitting at home internally debating whether to build two new residential colleges?
Update, 11:00 p.m.
It’s definitely Warner. She was sitting at the filing room desk assigned to NewsHour (see paparazzi picture above). We didn’t bother her, since she looked hard at work, and, sadly, we couldn’t find her after all the chaos had subsided.
