Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Commentary and named by the Financial Times the most influential commentator in America, Charles Krauthammer breathes new life into tired debates, offering clear and compelling arguments that everyone else overlooks.
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough has called Krauthammer “without a doubt, the most powerful force in American conservatism,” and Politico has said that “Krauthammer is revered by colleagues on the right and widely respected by those on the left.… Top Republican lawmakers read his columns, as does the President of the United States.”

The Future of Healthcare, Medicine and Bioethics
As a medical doctor and board-certified psychiatrist (though a member of the President’s Council on Bioethics, he speaks and writes unofficially and entirely independently), Dr. Krauthammer is uniquely situated to tackle the perils and promise of the new biotechnology, discuss end-of-life questions and challenge conventional wisdom on America's health-care. From policy to research, audiences are treated to a lively discussion by someone who understands the medical and ethical ramifications of the latest news from the world of medicine.
New Perspectives on Foreign Policy
With 25 years of experience commenting on foreign policy, Dr. Krauthammer offers a unique and highly influential perspective that is not afraid to challenge conventional wisdom. Whether writing about the Middle East, the war on terror, or the return of Russia and rise of China, his views have been attracting the attention of presidents and senior policy makers for years.
Charles Krauthammer began writing his weekly column for The Washington Post in 1985. It now appears in more than 400 newspapers worldwide. He is a contributor for Fox News and appears nightly on Fox's evening news program, Special Report with Bret Baier. He is a contributing editor to The Weekly Standard. He has won both the Pulitzer Prize (Distinguished Commentary, 1987) for his newspaper column and the National Magazine Award (Essays and Criticism, 1984), the highest award in magazine journalism. He has been honored from every part of the political spectrum for his bold, lucid and original writing – from the famously liberal People for the American Way (which presented him their First Amendment Award for his writing on religion) to the staunchly conservative Bradley Foundation (which awarded him their first $250,000 Bradley Prize).
