The Young Pundit About Image

Founded in 2018 by Daniel Schmidt, a 14-year-old high school freshman at the time, The Young Pundit is a news commentary outlet featuring young, incisive, and unbought conservative voices. Originally, TYP was created to allow Schmidt to express his thoughts on the most pivotal political events through easily understandable opinion pieces, combating what he perceived as a devaluation in traditional values and pragmatic thinking in political commentary.

A year after its founding, Schmidt realized a new direction for TYP‘s future. Witnessing the resurgence of interest in politics and conservative philosophy within the youth, he observed that other young individuals yearn for a medium that enables them to express their own, unbridled thoughts on the contemporary political environment through thoughtful, alternative, and illuminating opinion pieces — conserving what matters most in the process.

Starting in 2020, TYP will principally serve as a digital platform for traditionally conservative high school and college students to voice their authentic, unique, and passionate opinions. From the threat of war with Iran to the startling transformations occurring within American society, we want to publish stimulating pieces on all topics under the sun.

While others see the youth as apathetic, unintelligible, and ill-informed, The Young Pundit sees them as much, much more.
