Featured journalist: Lisa Daftari

Nov 03, 2014

To start off the month of November, we'd like to highlight the work and accomplishments of Lisa Daftari, an analyst and contributor with Fox News. An award-winning journalist fluent in four languages and with expertise in the Middle East and North Africa, Daftari frequently appears on shows such as Fox & Friends, Happening Now, Hannity, Geraldo at Large, Women’s Power Panel and Red Eye to offer insights on counter-terrorism, Iran and the Iranian American community. In addition to her Fox contributions, she has been featured on CBS, NBC, PBS, the Washington Post, Newsmax, Voice of America, Front Page Magazine, the Washington Times, Russia Today, and others. As for why Daftari embarked on this journey of journalism, she writes thats she did so "[t]o tell the stories no one was covering." Check out Daftari's Muck Rack portfolio for a sampling of her analysis, beginning with "Viral video captures Iranian woman dancing, defying strict Islamic code" (1,358 shares) and "Downgrading terminology won't diminish ISIS threat Fox News" (728 shares).

Remember: If you also want to be featured here, you should 1) set up your own journalist portfolio 2) get verified and 3) let us know by emailing Kirsten.
