Katie Pavlich of Townhall.com, whose exposé of the Obama administration’s “Fast and Furious” gun-running scandal became a national bestseller, was awarded “Blogger of the Year” honors Saturday at the 40th Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
Pavlich, a 24-year-old graduate of the University of Arizona, is widely recognized as a rising star of conservative New Media. She is news editor of Townhall.com and the youngest regular contributor at Fox News. Her book, Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and the
Shameless Cover-Up, became a New York Times bestseller shortly after it was published last April. Michelle Malkin praised Pavlich as an “intrepid investigative journalist,” and David Limbaugh heralded Pavlich as “a terrific reporter.”
