BIO

 Matthew Boyle is an investigative journalist for Breitbart News. Prior to joining Breitbart, Boyle spent two and a half years working as an investigative reporter at the Daily Caller. His reporting has helped shape the national policy conversation on issues such as immigration, Obamacare, and trade. He has been one of the most active on the 2016 campaign trail covering the Republican Presidential primary and the announcements of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Gov. Mike Huckabee, Dr. Ben Carson, Sen. Rick Santorum, Carly Fiorina, Gov. Rick Perry and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).

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 in other capacities?

It’s crucial that young people get involved and play a hands-on role in solving the problems of tomorrow—whether it be in politics, media, or other ways—because the politicians from the generation before ours and dinosaur-era media moguls have left us with a broken system and a failed government. We have a responsibility to expose them and use investigative journalism to hold them accountable.

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

What young people want from political leaders is bold, aggressive, reforms—real principles instead of hollow promises. We hate corruption, and aren’t beholden to one party or the other—we want real solutions and actual straight talk. People are tired of getting lied to by Washington and they’re even more tired of the go-along-to-get-along corruption that plagues our nation’s capital. They want clear communicators and leaders who stand up for Americans over foreign and special interests.

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

The conservative movement is much stronger today than it was when I started working in and around it a little more than 5 years ago. What I’d really like to see—as a journalist first, and a conservative second—is a much more vibrant and aggressive conservative media. It’s going to take aggressive original reporting to show just how bad things really are—in both parties—and how much career politicians are lying to the American people every day. I want 500 Andrew Breitbarts on Capitol Hill in 10 years, each questioning the politicians in both parties who put their personal political interests above the greater good. If the right-of-center media grows big enough and strong enough to not just serve as an alternative to the mainstream media—but replace it as the key source of news for average Americans—the politicians in Washington won’t be able to keep pulling the wool over people’s eyes. It’s time for a new media revolution with new media outlets.
