Getting paid for your punditry is even harder than it looks these days.
Most writers have blogs, social media accounts or podcasts to share their views. Some have a combination of all three. Monetizing those opinions is another matter.
Karol Markowicz cracked that code, and reading her thoughtful pieces shows you why.
The New York Post scribe darts from pop culture (canceling Jay Z) to cult-like behavior (pre-teen climate strikes) without missing a beat. Her columns are powerfully phrased and teeming with logic and wisdom.
Here’s a brief sample:
Jay-Z, once a Kaepernick defender, told the Wall Street Journal that there are “two parts of protesting. You go outside and you protest, and then the company or the individual says, ‘I hear you. What do we do next?’ I think we have moved past kneeling. I think it’s time for action.”
The online wokesters found this unacceptable.
Here’s Karol weighing in on why conservatives shouldn’t run screaming from liberal TV shows.
The better reason to go on “The Daily Show” and others like it is to expose people to something other than the one permissible perspective. Segments like mine on socialism are telling people we may want to try socialism again. Conservatives have to take every opportunity to fight that — even if it means enduring ridicule.
Karol spoke about family’s roots in the Soviet Union, how she transitioned into political punditry and the tenacity of the Cancel Culture movement on the latest HiT cast.
