The Wall Street Journal: Acclaimed conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer dies at 68

Charles Krauthammer, the Pulitzer Prize-winning conservative columnist whose incisive critiques made him an influential voice in Washington for decades, has died. He was 68.

The Associated Press reported his death Thursday. Krauthammer had said earlier this month that he was battling an aggressive form of cancer and his doctors told him he had weeks to live.

“This is the final verdict. My fight is over,” he wrote in a farewell note to his readers in early June. “I am grateful to have played a small role in the conversations that have helped guide this extraordinary nation’s destiny.”

Krauthammer’s column for the Washington Post was nationally syndicated. He was also a frequent Fox News contributor. Fox News and The Wall Street Journal share common ownership.
