He's asked how he would define his conservatism (he was always labeled as that in the media). He says here that he never said he was a conservative. He said he was a libertarian, but over time, after the financial crisis, he calls himself a Neo-liberal. He says he's a Utilitarian. He's suspect of regulation.
Josh Barro: My Ideology (Video at link)
Josh answers the question: How would you characterize your conservatism?
Josh Barro is an American journalist, currently the Politics Editor at Business Insider. He has previously written for Bloomberg View, and before that was a Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute.
This video is part of the Dish's Ask Anything interview series and was recorded on May 30, 2013 in New York, NY.
He does look sort of haggard and gaunt these days. Is he really a tweeker?
Incidentally, I recall him liking Nasty Pig on FB.
Josh Barro DEFINITELY needs facial hair and a soft key light... without those he's one of those guys that has well-proportioned features,a strong jaw,a straight nose and masculine head shape yet is STILL not particularly good-looking.
And he knows it.
I can't speak to the veracity of the meth angle but a lot of former fatties go overboard on the weight loss and end up looking drawn and unhealthy...he's probably in a binging/deprivation tailspin.
Compulsive,type A guys like him have difficulty with moderation and usually wind up positive.
[quote]Incidentally, I recall him liking Nasty Pig on FB.
His twitter feed is very anti-republican lately.
He was a fan of Nasty Pig on Facebook until he either deleted it or locked his page down.
He's really slimmed down for tv exposure. He used to be a pudgy Italian boy.
I never, ever would have known thats the same guy . Fat Josh, would not have dated. Thin Josh, let me at him. Amazed what gaing and or losing weight, will do.
The fat layers must hang off him. Lots of stretchy shin, with stretch marks. Anyone got a post-fattie shirtless pic to prove otherwise ?
Barro's friends with Nasty Pig's marketing guy.
Also - shirtless Josh, please.
He's anti Republican lately. But he's also pretty anti-Democratic Party and even Obama. He seems to be a contrarian a lot of the times, but some times he says things I really agree with.
The "suspect of regulation"/libertarian thing shows him to have more than a thick streak of "entitled white-privileged male douchebag" in him, though.
He blocked me on twitter after I went on an anti-libertarian tirade (posting lots of backing evidence and facts, not just calling names).
He didn't even follow me.
I did follow him, but how he even saw my tweets, I'm not sure. And so odd that he blocked me like that.

I'd block you too.
He's VERY well hung.
How do you know, R17? Details!
AWG alert! seriously nothing special at all. He really makes your mangina moist? Low standards I guess.
spoiled rich kid neoliberal. No thanks
in finance? probably a cokehead
He tweeted today that someone had edited his Wikipedia profile.
Sorry haters, he's cute. He does NOT have a haggard ex-fatty look. No turkey neck at all.
What is his anus like??
Recently I noticed him on MSNBC looking very, very tanned and rather gaunt. Then I saw him the very next day looking pale as could be. Apparently the spray-on tan didn't last very long.
I think he looked better when he was a little heavier with facial hair.
Whatever he has, I hope he doesn't give it to adorable Steve Kornacki.
He's not as sexy as my Ari!
I'd give him $10 to pose in a jockstrap.
Boy, you guys sure have low standards for hotness. In that Vimeo clip, you could lube a Buick with the oil on his face.
R17, is that because you're a libertarian asshole?
I'd bet he's ridiculously egotistical.
He's kinda cute, but "smoking hot"? Ummmmm ..... no.
He is VERY hot.
He's no Jeremy W. Peters.
He blocked me from Twitter because I asked him how big his cock was.
Of course he's single. Would a shameless whore have it any other way?
He's cute, but soooo obnoxious in person. Jeremy W. Peters on the other hand is interesting, but soooo not cute in person.
Josh is very short. He looks to be about 5'5" on TV. He also needs perfect lighting to appear hot.
I like the bearded guy with 3 names who has been on MSNBC a lot lately. His name sounds latino.
As a fellow "former fattie" like Josh I just want to say after finding this thread: I wouldn't fuck any of you queens with Rush Limbaugh's dick. The fucking ridiculousness of trying to tear someone down for being fat, or losing weight, is so 3rd-grade-bully I can't even take you people seriously. I guess you guys never got over being picked on in grade school?
He was tweaking on Thanksgiving. One of his off-the-wall comments (and remember, this is coming from a Harvard grad who's considered an intellectual):
"Cyber Monday is where everyone is supposed to have cyber sex, right?"
