editor of news gods and was the washington bureau chief for the chicago tribune he joins us by skype from chicago thanks for being with us james had the new issue is an unorthodox choice by all accounts fox news correspondent and anchor to the state department and now potentially the u.n. tell us about her foreign policy experience. take about five seconds not much it's really been primarily the last year and i have as spokesman of the united states state department where she was a rather unconventional pick to begin with having been preceded by john kirby a retired former rear admiral in a larger context on one level it's it's rather astonishing when one looks at the history of u.n. ambassadors going back in one nine hundred fifty s. you have people like adly stevens at twice the democratic party nominee for president george h.w. bush who's buried today was the united states ambassador you have
6:18 am
a rather prominent intellectual like daniel patrick moynihan who later to be united states senator from new york and the slaughter of women which includes nikki haley included among others now in all right who would be future secretary of state and even a somewhat unconventional pick at the time by president obama samantha power she had been a journalist with a great deal on experience notably in africa covering. genocide so on that level this is notable on another level i think it's very much an easily explained by trump's fascination with your medium of television in particular with american cable news television and in particular with the fox cable news network and where one of his favorite shows is a very popular morning show that brands and now are for several years was associated with that show and that has surely had something to do with their selection initially through the united states state department he has an interest
6:19 am
merely an obsession with image and people on to hope and she i want to ask you about her relationship with president track and the wise ass his there at the post i believe can either be a cabinet level post or a struct and so it still would have to report through secretary of state might pump air just how much influence does seem likely to have. well i don't think a great deal i think might prompt a oh who was a former united states public congressman who then became cia director now secretary of state she is the trump they tend to be on the same wavelength when it comes to much u.s. foreign policy unlike pompei its predecessor rex hillerman a former chief executive of exxon mobil who clash recombining with trump and also very much isolated his own spokesperson heather nauert who for
6:20 am
a pure long period of time believe travel around the world with taylor says now this change in the park peo regime but it isn't likely that they would restructure the job so it's no longer a cabinet level that's quite possible and there is a great there's a great deal of logic but the united states u.n. ambassador sensually reported to the secretary of state i wouldn't be surprised do you think the president trying to is trying to send a message to the u.n. by the support meant and choosing a former fox news anchor rather than someone who perhaps has had more foreign policy experience in terms of sending a message about u.s. foreign diplomacy. well i think it's less about foreign diplomacy when we read anything into it that sort of a rush lacks of condescension to various establishment sweeps chukwu foreign policy establishment she's clearly not part of that. but i think he likes the notion of someone who is going to be you know look probably very stylish impressive on
6:21 am
television who knows the medium very well who has a one should say not a fairly good job as spokesperson dealing with the almost daily briefings of the press corps secretary at the state department were basically are job is to take a big book and parrot repeat the talking points of the u.s. government comes to various conflicts and problems are around the globe so i'm not sure it's trying to send a great message i think he's just a narrative of the notion of image she's and there are people he's seen on television the first time i interviewed trump and i was writing a column to time new york times out of a pretty long print career the first thing he said was all i know you from television that's how he knew me and was supposedly impressed i think it's the same thing with heather nauert my point here the secretary of state is really in charge of foreign policy right now and i suspect they will work in sync and she will
