NYT Writer Doesn’t Regret Putting Off Kids To Write About Hillary Clinton
A New York Times writer doesn’t regret putting off kids to write about Hillary Clinton, she wrote in an op-ed for Glamour magazine Tuesday.
The New York Times writer Amy Chozick, who covered Hillary Clinton, does not regret waiting to have a baby until after 2016, she wrote for Glamour magazine. Chozick emphasized it was worth the wait, claiming she was first “entranced” by Hillary Clinton at a promotion for the former first lady’s book, “It Takes A Village,” in 1996. In 2013, Chozick was then put on the “Hillary beat” by Jill Abramson, the former executive editor for The New York Times.
“Whenever the subject of babies came up with my husband, Bobby, or with nosy but well-meaning friends, the conversation always found its way back to the same question: ‘What about Hillary?'” Chozick wrote.
“Thankfully, Bobby and I were in agreement on one thing: the chance to cover the election of the first woman President for the paper of record was too important to pass up — a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We decided to put off the baby for a few more years. I might not have been so willing to put my personal life on hold had the path to covering a presidential campaign for the Times been even a tiny bit easier,” Chozick added.
Chozick also debated whether or not to freeze her eggs on the outcome of the 2016 election, she previously noted. The reporter cried writing about Clinton’s loss to President Donald Trump the day after the election, she also claimed in an op-ed for The New York Times.

Chozick’s first memoir, “Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling,” was published Tuesday. Despite Chozick writing that she hired a fact checker, Chelsea Clinton claimed the book’s information is false, writing, “we clearly have different definitions of nonfiction,” in a Twitter post Wednesday.
Hi Amy! The first sentence in the excerpt below is false – everything I’ve heard thus far that you write about me didn’t happen. We clearly have different definitions of nonfiction. Looking forward to your (belated) fact checking as relates to me. Thanks! https://t.co/Np3fZUAm7v
