S.E. Cupp

S.E. Cupp doesn’t easily fit into the pre-defined description of a typical conservative columnist. The author of “Losing Our Religion: The Liberal media’s Attack on Christianity” and co-author “Why You’re Wrong About the Right,” she mixes hard-nosed analysis with pop-culture awareness in ways that sometimes seem incongruous with the Right’s company-line opinions. Readers who are tired of the black-or-white stridency of Cupp’s peers find her practical, open brand of conservatism refreshing. A true maverick, Cupp is one of the few conservative atheists who gets a seat at the table. Perhaps it’s because of the intellectual rigor and respect for first principles she brings to her work. Cupp’s writing credits reflect her unconventional convictions. She is a columnist at the New York Daily News and a contributor to CNN and Field & Stream Magazine. She has been published in the Washington Post, the Detroit Free Press, The American Spectator, Politico, the Daily Caller, Slate, Maxim, NASCAR.com, Sports Illustrated, Human Events, FoxNews.com, CNN.com and elsewhere. She was a consultant on the HBO program “The Newsroom” for two seasons. Cupp has appeared on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” “The View,” “Fox & Friends,” “Hannity,” “The Glenn Beck Program,” “The Mike Huckabee Show,” “The Daily Show,” “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” “Morning Joe” and others. A former professional ballet dancer, she graduated from Cornell University with a degree in art history in 2000 and holds a master’s degree from NYU. She was born in Carlsbad, Calif., and raised in Andover, Mass.
