“[Ryan Grim] needs to do his own show. He’s really good . . . objective . . .no bullshit rhetoric.”
“If you've been reading Ryan Grim's consistently groundbreaking reporting over the past decade, the recent monumental shift in our politics came as little surprise. For anybody who wants to understand where we've been and where we're going, The Squad is an essential read.”
—Naomi Klein, New York Times bestselling author
“[Grim] has become one of the most authoritative voices in Washington on a wide range of topics, but his specialty has always been giving voice to the voiceless and taking on powerful institutions trying to screw over the most vulnerable among us.”
—Lydia Polgreen, New York Times columnist
"Political reporter Grim, D.C. bureau chief for the Intercept, examines the rise, challenges, and influence of six aggressive left-wing politicians: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, and Ilhan Omar, branded by the media as The Squad, and the two representatives who joined them in 2021, Jamaal Bowman and Cori Bush...Drawing on his own on-the-ground reporting, Grim creates a detailed account of seven tumultuous years. An insider’s often dismaying picture of national politics."
