Meet Matthew Phoenix: CPAC’s youngest reporter. Crows Nest Politics caught up with the nine year old sporting media credentials, a mic and a cameraman – his dad – during the taping of the Sean Hannity show last night.
Phoenix has been reporting since Oct. 8, 2016. He told Crows Nest that he just got interested in politics, since it was his “first election.” He met President Trump at the December 15, 2016 “Thank you” rally. Phoenix had media credentials for the event. He was there with his dad when he was taken backstage to meet President Donald Trump.
Here at CPAC, Phoenix plans to get interviews – he said that he gets “a lot of last minute interviews.” Crows Nest asked the charismatic third grader if he has any plans to run for office himself someday. He said, “No. I want to be a reporter when I grow up.”
Looks like he is well on his way.
