Lippman: the Most Popular Citizen Journo in Town

By Betsy Rothstein 

Someone hire young Daniel Lippman already. Sure, he’s only a sophomore in college at GWU, but with the way things are going he’s going to get Jay Leno’s gig before this is all over.

Lippman, who pays keen attention to the news and offers corrective e-mails to journos whenever possible (i.e. fact checker extraordinaire), was most recently featured in Politico and on NPR. This past Sunday he was Fox News’s “Power Player of the Week” for being a “citizen journalist.”

Lippman says it makes him feel good to do it. “It makes me feel like I’m a small part of the media,” Lippman said.

Host Chris Wallace says he has never edited a story so carefully.
