"LI training is conservative bootcamp! This training is absolutely necessary for any aspiring leader on the right."
David Martosko has been the U.S. political editor at the Daily Mail since 2012, and was executive editor at The Daily Caller before that. The Daily Mail has the world's most-read newspaper website in the English language.
David doesn't have an office, unless you count his basement in Fairfax County. He rotates working from the White House, Capitol Hill, and a handful of cigar shops.
With zero formal journalism training, David is living proof that cultural literacy and good storytelling trump specialized education. He graduated from Dartmouth College and studied orchestral conducting at the Johns Hopkins University's Peabody Conservatory. (He is married to a professional opera singer.) Journalism came more than 15 years later.
David's communications career has included work in public relations, art direction, digital printing, web design, and talk-radio production.
This year David won an Emmy Award for his White House correspondent work on Daily Mail TV, a show in daytime syndication. He was part of the Daily Caller team that won an Edward R. Murrow Award in 2012, and his online PR work has won eight national awards.
