S.E. Cupp answers a question from audience on whether there is an identity crisis in the GOP.
Republican party today is a party of Trump, says S.E., rejecting that there is an identity crisis. The crisis, she believes that the party has is existential crisis from where the party is going and who its biggest mouth piece will be.

Answering a question from audience on whether President Trump is good for media as a business, S.E. answers that she thinks he is. She thinks that only silverlining in Trump's hostility towards press is that it made the press better since media is in scrutinity.
She further adds:
There's no question that it's good for media as business. I would hope that he has also made us better because he swings us a lot. Sometimes we deserve it. So I hope all of us question what we are saying whether it is true, whether we are doing our job the best we can.

We get this question all the time. Why does media report news as a sport with shouting fests? Why can't we be civil? Why so much partisanship? #SECuppAnswers
S.E. calls it supply and demand. If we viewers stop going to loudest, screamiest voices it will change. She thinks that there is no appetite on market to take this temperature down (Unfortunately!!)
Do you think it is possible to restore civility in media? Let us know your thoughts in comments.

In this short video, S.E. Cupp says "My message to Women when it comes to Social Media is stay engaged. I know it can be a nasty place. But it can also be a real place for good. That's what I found anyway"
I completely agree with her about the nasty comments out there. Women conservative journalists like her are often the target. As she says, There is the idea that we put ourselves as paragons of virtue, so there is an interest in tearing that apart and objectifying us, making us look only like sex objects instead of high-minded, intellectual, academic people that we are
This is precisely the reason why I started this fansite. S.E.Cupp is an intelligent, insightful, and of-course obviously a beautiful journalist. But comments in social media on her videos and posts are painful to see. Half the comments (and sometimes more) talks about dress, looks, shoes and everything else irrelevant to the work she does. Like she says, people objectify her. Intent of our website is to reject those and adore her for what she is. Yes she is dead-drop gorgeous. But we adore her for her values, principles and intellect too.
Hers is a courageous voice of reason. Her's is an important voice on variety of social issues. She is a role model for aspiring journalists. Her message needs to be heard by next generation and our mission is to get that message across.
Thank you S.E. Cupp for all you do. People like you make the society a better place.

S.E. Cupp kicked off the 2019 Greenlee Summit.
Cupp, a CNN commentator and columnist for the New York Daily News, addressed an audience at 7 p.m. Thursday as part of Iowa State’s lecture series. She began by applauding Iowa State students for their investment and interest in politics.
The Greenlee School of Journalism and Mass Communication chose a theme of civic democracy in the media for this year’s summit.
“I wish more young people, but also citizens, were as politically engaged as you guys seem to be here,” Cupp said.
She transitioned into a discussion where she said how good world is right now, but she quickly changed the tone of the address and began to talk about the little amount of change around the world. Cupp focused on the topic of politics in the media and spoke about the impact reporters and the media can have on politics.
Cupp said the quote, “[w]e are addicted to distraction, and parched for genuine community.” from Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., and expressed her thoughts on the impact social media has on the world.
Cupp said she believes as a society we need to care less about being liked. “When we start caring about how we are perceived by people in power, we’re doing it wrong," Cupp said. "When we say things that are undeniably hypocritical, it corrupts our trust in each other.”
Cupp added politics is similar to tribalism — it exists to divide and dictate the population on who they get along with.
She discussed how people commonly cling to tribalism and find people who have similar views. Cupp said she believes tribalism does not bring communities together, it only tears them apart.
Siddharth Nair, sophomore in computer science, said he agreed with Cupp when she addressed hate.
“The first part where she talked about how hate is the biggest problem in the world right now, in the U.S. especially," Nair said. "It’s a big factor in why we’re not progressing as a whole.”
The commentator discussed the importance of identifying extreme solutions in politics.
Cupp said most voters are not on one side or another, they are likely in the middle. She said she believes politics simply exist to divide and define people.
Ian Reed, senior in speech communication, said he agreed with Cupp. “It’s so important to have cooperation and unity between the press pool, and obviously between politicians," Reed said. "They spend their time outside of the senate chambers bashing each other."

Colleges should prepare you for real life and should not have safe spaces says S.E. Cupp in her speech at an event in Texas Lutheran University.

Her quotes from the video as below:
College should prepare you for life and life does not come with trigger warnings and safe spaces
College / Academia should be radically protective of free speech
Better way to prepare you for life is to hear as many ideas from as many different kinds of people as possible
As part of her millennial outreach project, S.E. Cupp does lot of work to educate young minds in college campuses to educate them on conservative values. This speech is one such effort

Conservative commentator S.E. Cupp visited Elon University Thursday, Feb. 27, to challenge students’ views of the United States’ “fractured political system.”
Cupp asked the audience, largely students, some adjectives that come to mind when picturing how conservatives view young people. The laundry list, which Cupp wrote down and displayed, included words like lazy, uniformed, selfish and irresponsible.
While some conservatives belittle the Millennial generation, Cupp said, some liberals “pander” to youth. She said both the Democrat and Republican parties need the youth vote, now 80 millions strong and projected to be two-thirds of the population eligible to vote by 2020.
“I’m so glad she came to Elon, and I think she’s different than a lot of the speakers we see her,” Cuzmenco said.
“I’m hoping that you can, over the course of you college careers and your later professional lives, maybe open your minds about some of the preconceived notions you have about the political movements within the two parties,” she said.
The Millennial generation, Cupp’s target audience, is unlike any other in history in its willingness to listen, to everyone from Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) to President Barack Obama.
But Cupp said she doesn’t blame young people for leaving both parties in droves and registering as independent in larger numbers than any preceding generation.
“I get that impulse,” she said. “I wouldn’t want to be associated with either party right now. Washington is terrible, and both parties have really tarnished their brands over the past few years.”
Senior Natalie Cuzmenco, president of the Elon chapter of the Young Americans for Liberty, a national libertarian organization, spearheaded the effort to bring Cupp to campus by securing funding from the SGA, her own organization, a political foundation and a private donor.
“I’m so glad she came to Elon, and I think she’s different than a lot of the speakers we see her,” Cuzmenco said. “I wanted to come out and show people that there’s more out there than preconceived liberal notions of what a college student should be. I wanted to open their minds some.”
“It’s really motivating, in a way, to see a speaker like her here at Elon,” he said. “It’s definitely not something you see everyday.” - A Elon Student on S.E. Cupp
Though Cupp openly identifies as an outspoken conservative, in what she still calls a “largely liberal” media landscape, she said she encourages political dissent and debate that is reasoned and tempered. Her political analysis show, CNN’s “Crossfire,” seeks to host debates with experts from all over.
Past guests have included everyone from Sally Kohn, a liberal political commentator, to Peter Sprigg, with the conservative-minded Family Research Council.
As she has expressed many times on the show, Cupp doesn’t have a whole lot of hope for her own Republican party, calling it “out of touch” and “ill-equipped” to reach women and minorities.
“I don’t have a ton of optimism that the GOP as it currently exists will be able to reach a lot of women and minorities,” she said. “After 2012, liberals hammered the death nail into conservatives when it comes to reaching young voters.”
Not all young voters have thrown in the towel, though, according to freshman Bryan Sullivan, a member of the Elon University chapter of the College Republicans, a national collegiate organization promoting Republican ideals.
“It’s really motivating, in a way, to see a speaker like her here at Elon,” he said. “It’s definitely not something you see everyday.”
Cupp also got more specific, keying in on voter ID laws, the Affordable Care Act and the role of technology in influencing the youth vote.
“This administration does not speak your language,” she said of the Affordable Care Act. “It would have been really easy to hire some teenagers from Silicon Valley to make this work better.”
Cupp is also firmly against the concept of a federal minimum wage, as she said it doesn’t reflect fiscal realities between states. The costs of living in Montana and in New York are two different realities, she said.
“If we are to focus on making minimum wage jobs a long-term employment option, that’s not a fair deal for the people who get stuck in the cycle of working them year after year,” she said. “They’re a great temporary option for college students and others who are willing to work hard and make money.”
To get to the root of issues, Cupp said, people have to become critical news consumers, not trusting what comes just from CNN or Fox News or MSNBC.
“I think we’d all do better, both as news consumers and producers, to challenge what we hear,” she said. “Don’t just sit back and watch. You have to craft the story from a culmination of different sources. You have to find the truth.”
