BIO

Alexander Marlow is the editor-in-chief of the Breitbart News Network. As Andrew Breitbart’s first hire, Marlow helped launch the right’s most infamous online publisher’s family of websites. He has been involved in breaking and developing numerous stories of international significance, including the ACORN child prostitution scandal and “Weinergate,” which lead to the resignation of then U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner. At the age of 28, he is perhaps the youngest top editor of a major media publication in the country. Marlow graduated from U.C. Berkeley, where he was an activism adviser for the Young America’s Foundation. His work with the Berkeley College Republicans landed him on the cover of Time magazine. He sits on the National Journalism Center’s Board of Governors, where he mentors the next generation of journalists and new media freedom fighters.

 

 

Why is it important that at this particular point in time, right-of-center youth become involved publicly, whether in politics, media, their communities, or another capacity?

Politics is downstream from culture. That means cultural actors wield more political power than politicians themselves. If conservatives hope to win hearts and minds, they must do whatever they can to cultivate a bigger presence in the news and entertainment media. It’s urgent and more fun than government.

 

What must elected officials and others in positions of leadership do to make a right-of-center message resonate with the Millennial generation?

In a sage moment, Andrew Breitbart once said, “if you can’t sell freedom, you suck.” It’s a good point. Sadly, many conservatives do not even attempt to “sell freedom.” The liberty lovers on the right are today’s punk rockers because they reject the values of those in power. Ironically, the pop-culture and media class who live to protect the Democrats are the real conformists. Let’s take the message that we are the counterculture to college campuses and see what happens.

 

Where would you like to see the conservative movement in 10 years — and how can it get there?

Conservatives should be judged over the next 10 years based on whether or not they are able to make inroads in our core cultural institutions: Hollywood, the news media, and the halls of academia. We can make substantial progress with a combination of infiltrating what the left has built and creating our own alternatives.
