An American "young pundit on the rise"
Saagar Enjeti is an American "young pundit on the rise", according to the National Review]. Once at The Daily Caller, Saager Enjeti then fronted a news show for The Hill, "Rising with Krystal and Saagar", co-hosted by the former MSNBC anchor Krystall Ball, with whom he also co-authored "The Populist’s Guide to 2020".
Before becoming a populist media personality, Enjeti pursued an undergraduate degree at George Washington University and a master’s degree in security studies at Georgetown University, both D.C.-area colleges well known for their connections to the national security state. Enjeti also decided to study counter-terrorism studies at Israeli university IDC Herzliya. Situated on a former military base, the university’s board boasts a former head of Mossad and ex-Prime Minister Ehud Barak.
While still in university, Enjeti landed a job at the Institute for the Study of War (ISW), writing policy briefs about the conflict in Afghanistan and analyzing the moves and strength of the Taliban. The ISW is a notoriously hawkish think tank funded by weapons contractors like Raytheon, General Dynamics and DynCorp.
From the ISW, Enjeti later moved to the Hudson Institute, an equally neoconservative and pro-Iraq War think tank, where he worked as a media fellow until 2020. Enjeti’s second podcast, “The Realignment,” was an official Hudson publication. Hosted with fellow Hudson employee Marshall Kosloff, the two lob softball questions to reactionary guests like Mike Pompeo, Niall Ferguson and Douglas Murray.
“@jack was the last of the tech CEOS who at least on a personal level was committed to free speech. His departure is probably going to make Twitter a lot worse for censorship (which is truly saying something)”
