Our featured guest this week on The R.J. Moeller Show is columnist and author Ben Shapiro.
Ben is married and currently runs Benjamin Shapiro Legal Consulting, based in Los Angeles. He is Editor-At-Large of Breitbart.com, and Shillman Fellow at the Freedom Center. Shapiro was hired by Creators Syndicate at age 17 to become the youngest nationally syndicated columnist in the U.S. His columns are printed in major newspapers and websites including Townhall.com, ABCNews.com.
We chat with Ben about the selection of Paul Ryan, the world of conservative media post-Andrew Breitbart, and what it's like to co-host a morning radio talk show (The Heidi Harris Show) in the second biggest American market. Don't forget to follow Ben on Twitter at @benshapiro!
In the second segment, our intrepid news-gal Caroline May - reporter for the outstanding Daily Caller website - bring us stories we "May Have Missed, But Probably Shouldn't Have." This week we learn about feminists protesting the DNC convention in Charlotte and the Obama administration's immigration problems. Follow Ms. May on Twitter at @c_maydc!
