Justin Haskins (born October 19, 1987) is a conservative blogger, columnist, and editor of The Heartland Institute.

Early life[edit]

Haskins graduated from Dover High School in Dover, New Hampshire.[1] He attended Providence College, but he did not graduate. He transferred to the University of Richmond and graduated in 2010, where he majored in paralegal studies and earned the William Marshall Book Award for academic excellence.[2] He graduated from Regent University with a master's degree in government in 2011 and with a master's degree in journalism in 2015.[2]

Career[edit]

Haskins worked as an intern for the Rhode Island Republican Party and was hired to be its field director in 2014.[3] In 2014, Haskins left the Rhode Island Republicans and was hired by The Heartland Institute, an American conservative and libertarian public policy think tank, to work as its editor.[4][5][6]

Haskins is a well-known conservative and libertarian columnist. He has published columns in various newspapers and news media outlets, such as the New York Post, The Washington Times, the Providence Journal, U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, and FoxNews.com.[7][8][9][10][11][12]

Haskins' writing also regularly appears on Breitbart.com, Human Events, and Townhall.com, where he is a columnist.[13][14][15]

Haskins' writing has received high praise from some of the leaders of the modern American conservative movement. Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh featured an article written by Haskins on his nationally syndicated talk radio show, The Rush Limbaugh Show. The article was highly critical of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.[16]

Haskins' writing has also been featured by influential political and media organizations, such as the American Conservative Union, Real Clear Politics, and Fox News.[17][18]

Criticism[edit]

Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank criticized Haskins for being a "climate-change denier" in a nationally syndicated column published on April 6, 2015. Milbank, referencing an article Haskins had written for Human Events[19], used Haskins as an example for Milbank's claim skeptics of man-caused global warming are "in retreat."[20]

Conservative writer James Delingpole said Milbank's claims about Haskins were taken out of context and "threadbare" in an article published on Breitbart.com.[21] Newsmax also accused Milbank of making false claims about Haskins' article.[22]
