With her common-sense perspective and keen political insights, Tara is considered one of television’s most outspoken and “must-watch” political commentators. As an ABC News contributor and host of The Lincoln Project’s streaming show “The Breakdown,” she cuts through the bluster and rhetoric to help audiences more clearly understand what is at stake on the national political and policy scene. Prior to joining The Lincoln Project in 2020, she was already a high-profile media commentator as a CNN contributor from 2014 through the end of the 2016 presidential election and again from 2018 through the 2020 election cycle. Vulture.com recognized Tara as one of 2016’s “Top 20 Election Coverage Stars” on TV.
Over the years, Tara has guest hosted The View, appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America and Nightline, HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, spent a decade as a regular panelist on PBS’s women’s issues program To The Contrary and filled in for The Michael Smerconish Program on Sirius XM’s POTUS channel.
