The well-connected Bennet family

By Laurie Bennett

When the New York Times announced last month that James Bennet would become the new editorial page editor, it noted that the departing editor, Andrew M. Rosenthal, was the son of the legendary A.M. Rosenthal, editor of the newspaper.

The story failed to mention Bennet’s powerful connections. His brother, Michael F. Bennet, is a U.S. senator from Colorado and was national co-chair of President Obama’s re-election campaign.

His father, Douglas J. Bennet Jr., was president of Wesleyan University and NPR, and served as an assistant secretary of state.

James Bennet, who previously was the Times’s Jerusalem bureau chief and White House correspondent, most recently served as president and editor of the Atlantic.
