Episode 83 of the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast features Washington Post reporter David A. Fahrenthold, who most notably has covered Donald Trump’s charitable giving through his Donald J. Trump Foundation, and most notably, broke the story of Trump bragging about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women during a 2005 conversation with Access Hollywood caught on a hot microphone.
In this hour-long episode, Fahrenthold discusses the parallels between political reporting and sports reporting; how he and his Post colleagues reported the Access Hollywood tape story; why he will not reveal the source to that story; how the Post verified the authenticity of the video; what it was like knowing he had a story that would have a seismic impact on an election; how he came to report on the Trump Foundation; why many of his non-responses from charities are those from the world of sports; his response to his reporting being called “badgering” by some in the Trump campaign; why the financial ties between Linda and Vince McMahon and Donald Trump is a white whale for him; whether he plans to write a book on his election reporting; the staff he works with at the Post; whether he has taken any extra security precautions for himself and family while reporting on this election; his love of the Houston Astros; whether he has allowed himself to think of such honors as the Pulitzer Prize for his reporting; and much more.
