Charles Krauthammer z’l leaves a legacy of bold ideas, political analysis, and cultural commentary. He was an American treasure, a Zionist champion, and a student of Jewish ideas. The loss of Charles Krauthammer leaves the American public square without its cornerstone conservative writer.
William Kristol, founding editor of the Weekly Standard, Rich Lowry, editor of National Review, and Matthew Continetti, editor and co-founder of The Washington Free Beacon will reflect on Dr. Krauthammer’s seminal writing, distinguished career, and his life dedicated to the things that matter. Join two of the most prominent editors as they pay tribute to this generation’s most important conservative columnist.
