H. E. Cupp is an established author, television presenter, and political commentator of a conservative disposition. She is widely known for her work as co-host of the weekday political podium show H.E. Cupp of the HLN: Unfiltered.
The perceptions of this intellectual sit in a strange space. For example, she wrote a book that spoke out against how the far-left media attack Christianity. The book is entitled Losing Our Religion: The liberal media’s attack on Christianity. Nothing seems unusual here until you realize that H. E. Cupp is also an outspoken atheist. It gets even stranger; she was also quoted as saying that she hopes to be a person of faith at some point in her life.
She has also co-authored other books such as Why You’re Frrong About the Right with Brett Joseph and has also had assignments on CNN, TheBlaze, and MSNBC, mainly as a panelist on political talk shows.
S. E. Cupp Biography and Career with CNN and MSNBC
The television presenter was born on 23 February 1979 in Carlsbad, California, as Sarah Elizabeth Cupp. As an adolescent, she spent some of her youth in Massachusetts, where she enrolled in the Academy of Notre Dame. Cupp began taking ballet lessons when she entered a ballet school at the age of six. She recalls that during this time she suffered from eating disorders, including a relapse during her student years.
S. E. Cupp received her college education at Cornell University. While she was here, she worked for The Cornell Daily Sun. She graduated in 2000 after earning a bachelor’s degree in art history.
After her time at Post-Cornell University, she took a job with an online magazine and then with a public relations firm. In 2002, Cupp climbed the career ladder when she was recruited by the New York Times to write and edit for their indexing department. She then continued her Masters’s at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University. Cupp graduated in 2010 with a Master of Arts degree in Religious Studies.
In 2009 she was hired as a columnist for the Daily News. S. E. Cupp also writes for magazines like Politico.com, and her writings have appeared in various publications such as Townhall, Maxim, Slate, The Washington Post, etc.
Two years after she was hired by the Daily News, she continued working as a writer and columnist for Glenn Beck’s Mercury Radio Arts. Apparently, she did something right because not long after her employment she was gifted with her own self-titled show S. E. Cupp. She was featured on the Insider Extreme shown on Beck’s website Glennbeck.com. The show was later to be taken over by TheBlaze TV (formerly GBTV).
In June 2012, she joined MSNBC, where she co-hosted the political talk show The Cycle with political strategist Krystal Ball, pop culture analyst Touré, and political writer Steve Kornacki. A little over a week later, H.E. Cupp, who is a well-known atheist, said on the show that she did not think it was right for an atheistic president to govern the United States. Her premise was that atheists made up only 10 to 15 percent of the country’s population, with the rest belonging to other faiths.
As a member of the right-wing – the Republican Party – H. E. Cupp is also part of a group called Log Cabin Republicans who are pro-LGBT and support gay marriage. The self-proclaimed “mainstream conservative” has also opposed several lobbyists and politicians because of their views on certain issues. Most notable was when she spoke out against Ron Paul’s views on foreign policy and the Federal Reserve.
While working at MSNBC, Cupp was scheduled to appear at a Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) sometime in 2013. However, in March she announced that she would not be attending the conference. Cupp stated that she was uncomfortable with the fact that the event had marginalized “mainstream conservatives” like herself. After she withdrew from the conference, she joined the Young Conservatives for the freedom to marry.
H. E. Cupp’s time on CNN came when the channel announced in June 2013 that she would be participating in the re-release of the Crossfire debates program in the fall of 2013. Sarah Cupp hosted the show alongside Newt Gingrich, Van Jones, and Stephanie Cutter. It appeared for the last time on MSNBC’s The Cycle, one day after the announcement was broadcast by CNN.
On March 13, 2017, it was announced that the journalist and author would join CNN’s sister network Headline News (HLN) to host a new evening show aptly titled S.E. Cupp: Unfiltered.
Cupp has managed to keep information about her family – parents, and siblings – secret. However, she is married to John Goodwin. John once served as Chief of Staff to Congressman Raul Labrador, who is also a Republican. She met Goodwin at the 2008 Republican Congress and the two got along well. Their dates started sometime in 2011, and John asked the question a year later. In November 2013, the two entered into marriage and welcomed their first child, a son in 2014, who they named John Davies Goodwin III.
