During his career Dana covered the 2000 and the 2004 presidential elections. He also covered President George W. Bush’s first term in office. After Bush won the 2000 election, Karl Rove asked The Washington Post not to assign Dana to cover White House news.  A pool report penned by Dana in 2001,which covered a Bush visit to the U.S. Capitol generated controversy within conservative circles.  According to him the nickname given to him by the president is “not printable in a family publication.”

Prior to coming to the Post as a political writer in 2000, he covered the Clinton White House for The New Republic and Congress for The Wall Street Journal.

Dana was criticized for a July 30, 2008 article in which, in part by using snippets of quotations, he portrayed Barack Obama as being presumptuous. A few days later MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann stated that Dana would not be allowed back onto his show, which Dana had appeared on since 2004, until Dana submitted “a correction or an explanation.” However, he  had apparently already left Olbermann’s show for another show on CNN. He  stated that he has been dissatisfied since he was criticized by Olbermann’s staff over making a positive comment about Charlie Black, a John McCain senior advisor, and as a result had already been negotiating with CNN.

Dana and Chris Cillizza appeared in a series of humor videos called “Mouthpiece Theater” which appeared on The Washington Post’s website. An outcry followed a video in which, during a discussion of the White House “Beer Summit”, they chose new brands for a number of people, including “Mad Bitch Beer” for Hillary Clinton. Both men apologized for the video and the series was canceled.
