The College Fix hires veteran journalist as assistant editor

The College Fix is happy to announce that veteran journalist Lisa Schiffren has joined its staff as an assistant editor.

“I am delighted to be in a position to help mentor young conservative journalists who are just starting out in the profession,” she said.

Schiffren most recently worked at the Jewish Policy Center, a think tank in Washington D.C. that addresses foreign policy, national security, and some domestic issues, often with an eye to how they impact American Jews and the U.S.-Israel relationship.

Over the years, Schiffren has written for the American Spectator, New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, New Criterion, National Review, The Weekly Standard, American Greatness, and other publications.

Earlier in her career, Schiffren was a well-known Republican speechwriter. She wrote for Vice President Dan Quayle when he was in the White House, among others.

She became known for writing the controversial “Murphy Brown” speech, which argued children need two parents to do well and being born to a single mother is often a pathway to poverty and dysfunction. That speech created a battle in the culture wars during the 1992 presidential election.

As a young journalist at the Detroit News, Schiffren wrote award-winning columns and editorials on urban policy, welfare policy, and the effects of the Great Society programs on Detroit. She also went to Afghanistan to write about the Soviet War. She later returned for a year of reporting from the field with the Mujahideen.

Schiffren took off many years to raise her family.

Schiffren continues to write a monthly policy analysis piece for Newsmax Magazine. She also writes for Michael Walsh’s online publication, The_Pipeline.org, which focuses on debunking climate change issues and the policies that have sprung up to address it.
