"With his extensive background as both a veteran political reporter and newsletter anchor, Olivier will bolster our coverage in Washington, D.C. and spearhead what will be an informative and useful new publication for our readers."

"We are overjoyed to have Olivier join the team to bring reporting that is objective, insightful and compelling as both a journalist and the curator of our Decision Points newsletter each weekday."


"I'm thrilled to be joining the dynamic team at U.S. News & World Report," Knox said. "I'll be decoding national politics, decrypting foreign policy, and demystifying Washington, D.C., for our readers as they make important life decisions."

A native speaker of French, Knox got his start as a reporter at Agence France-Presse, for which he eventually covered all eight years of the George W. Bush administration. Knox has served as president of the White House Correspondents' Association and is an associate member of the Gridiron Club.
