ABOUT OLIVIER KNOX
Olivier Knox covers Congress and Politics for Agence France-Presse, the world’s oldest and third-largest news agency. An AFP White House correspondent from December 2000 to January 2009, he operated out of the veal pen-sized workspace where they kept him so he didn’t develop any unsightly muscle mass. Prior to chronicling President George W. Bush’s tenure, Olivier covered then-vice president Al Gore’s White House campaign. From 1998-2000, he covered the US Congress, including then-president Bill Clinton’s impeachment and subsequent Senate trial.
Before that, he was an editor/reporter on AFP’s English Desk in Washington, a job he took after graduate school. Olivier is the son of a French mother and an American father whose French astounds native Francophones. He grew up in Middlebury, Vermont and Paris, France.
