Charles Krauthammer ; born March 13, 1950) is an American Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist, political commentator, and physician. His column is syndicated to more than 275 newspapers and media outlets. He is a contributing editor to the Weekly Standard and The New Republic. He is also a weekly panelist on the PBS news program Inside Washington and a nightly panelist on Fox News‘s Special Report with Bret Baier.
In 2009, Politico columnist Ben Smith wrote that Krauthammer had “emerged in the Age of Obama as a central conservative voice”, a “kind of leader of the opposition…a coherent, sophisticated and implacable critic of the new president”. The New York Times columnist David Brooks says that today “he’s the most important conservative columnist.” Former congressman and MSNBC host Joe Scarborough called Krauthammer “without a doubt the most powerful force in American conservatism. He has [been] for two, three, four years.”
