Episode 8: Kelsey Harkness

By Jackson Richman

For the eighth episode of “The Discourse,” I interviewed Kelsey Harkness, who is a senior reporter and producer at The Daily Signal.

Topics included women in conservative media, sexual harassment, Harkness’s latest work, which included interviewing Columbine victims who favor arming teachers, and other issues, like Majory Stoneman Douglass High School student and Second Amendment advocate Kyle Kashuv not being included in mainstream media coverage.

She also responded to Women’s March DC president Mercy Morganfield’s rebuke of Women’s March leader Tamika Mallory for her association to the anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.

Harkness is also a fellow at the Steamboat Institute and a contributor to The Federalist. She appeared on a panel last February at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, which featured public policy expert Mona Charen, who was jeered for criticizing hypocrisy on the Right, including when it comes to the sexual harassment and sexual abuse issue (Also discussed in this episode).
