Named by The Atlantic magazine as one of the top fifty political commentators in America, Jonah Goldberg is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Dispatch and the former senior editor of National Review magazine. As a speaker, Jonah Goldberg stimulates audiences with bold, provocative critiques of the today’s highly polarized political landscape, examining the underpinnings of liberal and conservative ideologies, economic policy, and the changing role of modern-day media. Goldberg is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, where he holds the Asness Chair in Applied Liberty. In 2019 he left National Review magazine after a 21-year stint to cofound The Dispatch, where he is Editor-in-Chief. His first book, Liberal Fascism, was a #1 New York Times and Amazon bestseller and was selected as the #1 history book of 2008 by Amazon readers. His second book, The Tyranny of Clichés, was also an instant bestseller and hailed as perhaps “the best and most fun-to-read primer on the tenets of conservative politics since P. J. O’Rourke’s Parliament of Whores.” His most recent book, Suicide of the West: How the Rebirth of Tribalism, Populism, Nationalism, and Identity Politics Is Destroying American Democracy, was also a New York Times bestseller in 2018. Goldberg has previously served as a columnist for the Times of London. His writings have appeared in the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and numerous other publications. For over a decade he was a Fox News Contributor and Special Report “All Star.” He is currently a CNN commentator, and he has appeared on numerous news programs including Meet the Press, Face the Nation, This Week, Fox News Sunday, and State of the Union.
