Charles Krauthammer (/ˈkrt.hæmər/; March 13, 1950 – June 21, 2018) was an American syndicated Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, author, political commentator, and former physician. His weekly column was syndicated to more than 400 publications worldwide.[1]

Krauthammer was paralyzed from the waist down due to a diving board accident while at Harvard University.[2]

He was a weekly panelist on PBS news program Inside Washington from 1990 until it ceased production in December 2013. He is a contributing editor to The Weekly Standard and a nightly panelist on Fox News Channel's Special Report with Bret Baier.

On June 8, 2018, Krauthammer announced that he had been suffering from small intestine cancer the "past ten months."[3] He died two weeks later on June 21 in Atlanta, Georgia at the age of 68.[4]
