Eagle Publishing today announced that Jason Mattera is the new Editor of Human Events. The release said Mattera, 26, is “believed to be the youngest editor of any major national publication”.
“Given his youth, we recognize Jason’s appointment may seem a bit surprising, but only if you don’t know him,” stated Joe Guerriero, VP/Group Publisher of Eagle Publishing’s GeoPolitical Division, which includes Human Events. Guerriero went on, “Jason’s ability to understand what is truly important, not just repeat DC’s echo chamber, plus his unique ability to put facts into understandable, interesting-and even fun-stories and videos is remarkable. His wisdom and talents are far beyond his years.”
Even Ann Coulter gives him a nod: Coulter, best-selling author and conservative commentator, had a one-word comment when asked what she thought of Mattera, ‘Brilliant!'”
