Location: Oak Room, South Dining Hall (View on map.nd.edu)

Victorino Matus

Journalists need to be read. They need to be loved. Self-importance and self-obsession are common traits in this profession but they aren’t exactly among the gifts of the Holy Spirit. So how does a Catholic journalist navigate these perilous waters? Longtime writer and editor Victorino Matus recounts his own journey and discovers, in the words of Midge Decter, “There comes a time to join the side you’re on.”

Join us for a lunch and learn with Matus, the deputy editor of the Washington Free Beacon (author page) and a contributing editor at the Weekly Standard. He has also published at the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the New York Post, National Review, Policy Review, Salon, the Smart Set, Armed Forces Journal, and Washingtonian magazine. He has covered a wide array of subjects, including politics, Germany, military history, and popular culture. 

No RSVP necessary. Lunch provided.
