Maureen Dowd Biography and Wiki
Maureen Dowd is a well-known American columnist for The New York Times. Dowd worked for the Washington Star and Times, she wrote news, sports and feature articles, during the 1970s and early 1980s.
In 1995, Dowd took over as an op-ed columnist for The New York Times, replacing Anna Quindlen. Dowd was voted Glamour magazine’s Woman of the Year in 1996, and she earned the Pulitzer Prize for outstanding commentary in 1999.
In 2000, she received the Damon Runyon Award for distinguished achievements to journalism, and in 2005, she spoke at the University of Texas at Austin’s Mary Alice Davis Lectureship for the first time. Dowd was placed No. 43 on The Daily Telegraph’s list of America’s 100 most influential liberals in 2010, and No. 37 on the same list in 2007.
Dowd’s columns have been compared to letters to her mother, who is credited by friends as “the source, the fountain of Maureen’s humor, her Irish sensibility, and her intellectual approach.” “She is in my thoughts in the sense that I aim to inform and amuse the reader,” Dowd has remarked. Dowd’s columns are known for their sarcastic, frequently confrontational tone.
Dowd, who sees her columns as a study of politics, Hollywood, and gender issues, frequently employs pop culture to buttress and metaphorically augment her political criticism. “You could look at a movie like Mean Girls and figure out how these North Koreans are reacting; you know, it’s like high school girls with nuclear weapons—they just want some attention from us, you know?” she remarked of the North Korean regime in a Times video debate.
Dowd claimed she ate a quarter of a cannabis-infused chocolate bar while exploring the licensed recreational cannabis sector in January 2014. She claimed she was later advised she should have eaten only one-sixteenth of the package, which was not stated on the label.
She subsequently wrote an op-ed for The New York Times on June 3, 2014, on her terrible experiences with legal cannabis. Dowd followed up on this narrative with another New York Times op-ed in September 2014, this time documenting a conversation with her “marijuana Miyagi,” Willie Nelson, about the use of consumable cannabis.
