After serving in the army during the Korean War he became a reporter for the Associated Press and then joined the Washington bureau of The Wall Street Journal. In 1963 he and fellow reporter Rowland Evans began writing the political column Inside Report, and they later created the Evans-Novak Political Report, a subscription newsletter with political news, gossip, and other "insider" fare. Long known as a political conservative, Novak became a more visible and strident voice for the right wing when he began co-hosting Crossfire in 1980. He later appeared on the similar shows like The Capital Gang and Inside Politics. Novak became the subject of a heated political controversy when he revealed the name of CIA operative Valerie Plame in a 2003 column. Critics charged that Novak had "outed" Plame at the behest of Karl Rove or other advisors of George W. Bush who wanted to punish her husband, Joseph Wilson, for saying that Bush had twisted intelligence reports to justify invading Iraq. Novak wrote several books with Evans, including Lyndon B. Johnson: The Exercise of Power (1966), Nixon in the White House: The Frustration of Power (1971), and The Reagan Revolution (1981). Novak retired in 2008 after announcing he had a malignant brain tumor, and died the next year.....Rowland Evans-columnist, author-Born: 04/28/1921 columnist, pundit, and author who earned the ire of liberals and the praise of conservatives.
