Sidney Blumenthal is a son of Claire and Hyman V. Blumenthal, and grew up in a Jewish family in Illinois. After earning a BA degree in sociology from Brandeis University in 1969, Sidney got his first job as a journalist, writing for weekly-issued publications such as The Boston Phoenix and The Real Paper.

He published a book entitled “Permanent Campaign” in 1980, while in 1983, Blumenthal started working as a national political correspondent for The New Republic, with his first major job coverage of the 1984 presidential campaign. Sidney later moved to The Washington Post for a few years, but then returned to The New Republic, before in 1993 joining The New Yorker as their Washington correspondent.

In the summer of 1997, Blumenthal joined the Bill Clinton Presidential administration and served as assistant and senior advisor to Clinton until 2001, advising the President on communications and public policy. Sidney was a major figure in Clinton’s affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, in a controversy known as the Lewinsky scandal. After Clinton’s presidency, Blumenthal worked on his next book entitled “The Clinton Wars” and published it in 2003. Prior to that, Sidney wrote and published “The Rise of the Counter-Establishment” (1986), “Pledging Allegiance: The Last Campaign of the Cold War” (1990), while his latest release was “How Bush Rules: Chronicles of a Radical Regime” (2006), the sales of which increased his net worth by a large margin.

From 2003 to 2007, Blumenthal returned to journalism and worked as a regular columnist for The Guardian, before joining the 2008 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign as a senior adviser in November 2007, but was arrested for driving while intoxicated in New Hampshire and didn’t stay for long with Hilary. However, Sidney was a full-time employee of the Clinton Foundation from 2009 to 2013 and then served as a consultant from 2013 to 2015, with a monthly salary of $10,000. At the moment, Blumenthal is working as a consultant to the left-leaning watchdog group Media Matters for America, the pro-Clinton Super PAC Correct the Record, and the pro-Democratic Super PAC American Bridge 21st Century.

Sidney Blumenthal was also involved in the movie industry, having worked as a political consultant and co-producer on such projects as Robert Altman’s Primetime Emmy Award-winning mockumentary called “Tanner ’88”. He was also the executive producer of the Oscar Award-winning documentary “Taxi to the Dark Side” (2007).
