Daily Caller Gets High Schooler for a Day

Jamie Lovegrove, a student at The Potomac School in McLean, Va., won a day at the Daily Caller in a school-sponsored auction. The name sounds pretty 70s. He says it’s British.

He’s spending the day in their office today.

Items in the auction are put up by parents and friends of The Potomac School, and Lovegrove’s mom suggested he enter the Daily Caller auction. He takes part in journalism at school, so it seemed logical.

“It’s fun,” he said of his day so far. “It’s not what I expected.” He’d been to a couple of print outlets, naming WaPo and NYT, but this was “different.”

So far he has been learning about the inner workings of an online newsroom and meeting the reporters. We wanted to know who he thinks was the funniest. “Probably Tucker,” he said, referring to editor-in-chief Tucker Carlson.

If he’s angling for a job someday, that was the right thing to say.
