Marking 50 years as a journalist and commentator, popular syndicated columnist Cal Thomas says America’s future is closely tied to the education of our children.


“My hope, again, goes back to educating our children and grandchildren in ways that our parents and grandparents educated us,” Thomas says. “And if you don’t rescue the next generation, you’re not going to have much of a country anymore.”


Born in the District of Columbia, Thomas began his career at age 16 working as a disc jockey at a radio station in suburban Maryland. He later landed a job as a copy boy at NBC News’ Washington bureau and became a reporter. He began to write a column in 1984.


Today, Thomas is one of America’s best-known and most popular syndicated columnists, despite being a conservative. A longtime fixture on Fox News Channel, he is the author of 14 books, including “A Watchman in the Night: What I’ve Seen Over 50 Years Reporting on America,” which is just out.


Thomas joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss the changes he has witnessed in America over 50 years and what he foresees the future may hold for the nation.
