Charles Hurt is Fox News contributor and Opinion Editor for The Washington Times. He is a frequent guest on the network’s premiere nightly news show Special Report as part of the program’s “All Star Panel.” As Opinion Editor, Hurt edits the Commentary Section of The Washington Times, the lone conservative voice in the nation's capital going back 35 years. Even in today's crowded media environment, The Washington Times remains the only full-service, daily printed newspaper committed to hard news in its news section and a conservative voice on its opinion pages.
Hurt also writes the Nuclear Option column for The Times, focusing on the current state of national politics, fiascos of media bias and the various criminal activities of politicians and bureaucrats. In addition, he has covered Washington for a variety of newspapers for nearly 15 years. He traveled extensively with the presidential campaigns of John Kerry, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
Before joining The Washington Times as Opinion Editor, Hurt was an editor for five years at the Drudge Report. Prior to that, he was DC Bureau Chief for the New York Post, where he covered the White House, traveled with Presidents Bush and Obama and wrote a weekly column about national politics for the tabloid. A column he wrote about then-Sen. Barack Obama's position on the Iraq war got him thrown off the 2008 Obama campaign plane.
Prior to working for The Post, Charlie was Chief Congressional Correspondent for The Washington Examiner after serving several years as Capitol Hill Bureau Chief for The Washington Times. His first job in Washington was working for the Charlotte Observer, covering the emerging political "superstar" John Edwards -- who at that time was only famous for NOT being picked by Al Gore for VEEP in 2000.Prior to moving to Washington one week after 9/11, Charlie worked for The Detroit News for seven years covering the city’s fire department, city schools and political corruption.
Hurt lives in Chatham, Virginia, a small tobacco town in southside Virginia, where he grew up and his entire family still lives. His brother, Robert, represented Virginia’s vast, mostly rural Fifth District in the U.S. House of Representatives for three terms.
The fee for this event is $25.00 per household.
