Charles "Charlie: Hurt

VFRW 2018 Convention

Convention Banquet featured speaker

Charles "Charlie" Hurt

We welcome Charles “Charlie” Hurt as featured speaker for our 2018 Convention Banquet.

Charlie Hurt is an American journalist and political commentator. He became the opinion editor of the Washington Times in March of 2017. Charlie contributes to Fox News, Breitbart News and is a Drudge Report editor. He often appears as a guest on Newsmax TV. Previously he was the New York Post’s D.C. Bureau Chief covering Washington Politics.

He started in the reporting business as a youngster in rural Chatham, Virginia. Charlie, at age 8, became the managing editor of the single-page publication, “The Gilmer News and Gossip,” that he owned with his brother, Robert, and his sister, Elizabeth.

Charlie later interned at the Danville Register & Bee, Richmond Times-Dispatch and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He graduated from Hampden-Sydney College in 1995 with degrees in English and political science. Charlie worked for the Detroit News from 1995-2001 before becoming the Washington correspondent for the Charlotte Observer. Then, he worked briefly for the Washington Examiner before becoming Washington bureau chief for the New York Post.

He holds the distinction of being kicked off Barack Obama’s campaign plane in 2008 after writing what a press aide called “the single most offensive thing written about Barack Obama in this entire campaign.”
