Host: John Locke Foundation. Fred Barnes founded The Weekly Standard with Bill Kristol and John Podhoretz in 1995. In 1996, he joined Fox News as a political contributor. He co-hosts Fox’s The Beltway Boys with Mort Kondracke, and regularly appears on Special Report with Brit Hume.
The Media Guide gives Barnes four stars—its highest rating—and calls him a “great political reporter-columnist” whose material is “exquisitely timed.”
Barnes is considered a hard-hitting, no-holds-barred journalist who delves into key issues to uncover the real story. When speaking to audiences or answering their questions, Barnes delivers the same insightful commentary with the wit and the no-holds-barred style that has made him a respected journalist.
