Ana Kasparian from The Young Turks is more than a rebel

Ana Kasparian is co-host of The Young Turks

Ana Kasparian has co-hosted the news and commentary program "The Young Turks" since 2012. She joined TYT as a two-week producer in 2007, and basically refused to leave. We have a couple things in common: we graduated from Cal State Northridge with a Bachelor's in journalism (she in 2007, I in 2001) and have returned to teach at CSUN. And we also worked at KNX news radio in Los Angeles. I was a weekend writing intern there during college, and Ana was a producer right out of university. Ana went on to earn her Master's degree in political science. We talk about developing her rebel streak at a young age, how in high school she would beat college kids in debate, how Barbara Walters inspired her to get into journalism, how the Armenian Genocide affected her family, and why she eloped!
