Benny Johnson is obsessed with the intersection of politics and the social web. He works day-to-day on curating Washington’s complex political discourse into a relatable, online dialogue for a socially native audience. Often times, that involves destroying flip phones with a blender and cooking bacon on a machine gun. He worked previously as the Digital Director of National Review, the Viral Politics Editor at BuzzFeed, the Viral Politics editor at TheBlaze and Multimedia Director at Accuracy In Media. Benny is based in Washington D.C. and hails from Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
