Bronstein to interview Vargas for Commonwealth Club
Jose Antonio Vargas, the Pulitzer Prize winning reporter who has acknowledged that he is an illegal immigrant from the Philippines, will sit down for an interview with the Commonwealth Club next Monday, July 11, in San Francisco. Vargas, who graduated from Mountain View High School and worked at the Chronicle before going on to the Washington Post, will be interviewed by Phil Bronstein, the Chronicle’s editor-at-large. Bronstein has written that he felt duped by Vargas. But he also said that Vargas is “blessed with talent and brains” and that he sees him as a friend.
