Publisher's Summary

Our guest is Fred Barnes, television commentator and executive editor of the Weekly Standard. He discusses the relative importance of the Weekly Standard to those in the political community, including the role it played in discovering Sarah Palin in 2007.

He reflects on his conservative upbringing in Arlington, Virginia and notes the changes he experienced in his life when he became a born again Christian. He recalls his early days on television, including his participation as a panelist in the first 1984 Presidential debate and how it led him to a position on The McLaughlin Group.

He talks about his time with the New Republic magazine and why he felt the need to provide a conservative alternative. He praises syndicated columnist Robert Novak and describes his memoir, The Prince of Darkness: 50 Years Reporting in Washington the best book ever written about politics. Barnes talks about the change in ownership of the Weekly Standard from Rupert Murdoch to businessman Philip Anschutz. He defends his overt support of the Bush administration, as well as his claim that the media “pulled out all the stops” to reelect President Obama. [Broadcast Date: March 17, 2013]
