FishbowlDC Interview With Townhall’s Glass

Say hello to Townhall.com’s Managing Editor Kevin Glass. This is his fifth or sixth CPAC. He has spent most of it with Townhall. “Yeah, it’s a fairly big deal,” he told us today in an empty banquet room of the Gaylord Hotel. “For all the crap that it gets, it’s the largest and most important gathering of conservatives every year.” Looking back on previous CPACS… “At the 2008 CPAC, President Bush showed up as a surprise at 7:15 in the morning one day,” he recalled. “He wasn’t on the schedule. At that same CPAC, Mitt Romney dropped out of the Republican presidential primary against John McCain. It was interesting to see back then that the grass roots activists were upset. The Ron Paul supporters were always fun every year. Ann Coulter spoke before Ron Paul, so Ron Paul supprters kind of flooded the ballroom. She was insulting Libertarians as pot smoking hippies.” Glass says the conference is “definitely still exciting.” But, he says, the venue change has made it harder to gauge. “There’s no media balcony where we used to be able to watch the crowd get excited.” Glass has worked at Townhall for five years minus a six month stint the Washington Examiner. Born and raised…Born in Houston, Glass lived there for about the first decade of his life before his family moved to Moscow and then London. College…A graduate of Colgate University, he studied political science and worked for his high school and college newspapers. His “abroad semester” at Colgate was Washington, D.C., where he  interned for Freedom Works and the RNC. “It was more of an activist type of thing,” he said, explaining that he thinks conservative journalists need to see themselves as reporters first, journalists second. “I think what you would call Townhall is advocacy reporting,” he says. “I think that’s where conservative journalism is moving. I don’t want to call it real reporting as opposed to what people would call traditional journalism. I don’t want to close the tent on what a real reporter is and I’m not the person to define what a real reporter is.” Why not? “I think that we’ve seen with blogs, anyone can be a journalist.” Really, anyone can be a journalist? “Not everyone can be a good journalist,” he said. “But the act of finding out facts and telling them to people is something that has been democratized in online space.” Competition among conservative publications…For a long time, says Glass, National Review has been the gold standard of news and opinion. But that’s changed a lot. I wouldn’t say anyone says, you work for them, you’ve made it. You can make it anywhere.” 

If you were a carbonated beverage, which would you be?  My favorite is Mountain Dew but I don’t think I’m Moutain Dew. I would say I’m Sierra Mist.

How often do you Google yourself? Not that much.

What’s the worst thing you’ve ever said to an editor/boss (or vice versa)?  “That’s bullshit.”

Who is your favorite working journalist and why?  I would say Robert Costa at National Review has been an absolute superstar in the last year and a half. He’s doing what I think a lot of conservative journalists should be doing. He’s on the ground everyday. He has probably the best contacts of any reporter anywhere in Washington.

Do you have a favorite word? No, I do not.

Who are you named after? My middle name is my grandfather’s name.

Who would you rather have dinner with – NBC’s Brian Williams, CNN’s Roland Martin, ABC’s Sherri Shepherd or Fox News’ Megyn Kelly? Tell us why. Williams. He seems like a smart and fun guy who would be fun to talk to. I think he is one of the more fair-minded mainstream media reporters out there. Would be interesting to know how he came to be and obviously tips on how to succeed as a journalist.

The Earth’s human population is dying out and you must save it. You will spend a romantic evening with either Scandal’s Kerry Washington, Homeland’s Claire Danes or any of the women from FNC’s “The Five”. Who will it be? (None is not an option.) I would say Kerry Washington. She’s obviously gorgeous and she does great work.

What swear word do you use most often?  Probably frack or fuck, but usually frack. I try to keep it PG.

Find out what Glass wants to do with Michael Jackson.
