Charles Krauthammer is an American columnist, author, journalist for The Washington Post, and political commentator on FOX news' 'Special Report with Bret Braier'. Many AllSides community members agree with the AllSides Bias Rating™ of 'lean right,' however, many have also rated him 'right' as of July 2017. While he does support neoconservatism, he still advocates some liberal causes, therefore, Krauthammer's bias leans right, according to AllSides.

Editorial page editor, Meg Greenfield, edited Krauthammer's columns for 15 years, and she described his weekly columns as "independent and hard to peg politically" because "you never know what's going to happen next." Hendrik Hertzberg, Krauthammer's former colleague at the New Republic, described Krauthammer's political ideology in the 1980s to be "50-50: fairly liberal on economic and social questions, but a full-bore foreign-policy neoconservative." Now, he calls him a "solid 90-10 Republican." In a speech given by Krauthammer in 2005, he explains that neoconservatism is "a governing ideology whose time has come."
