Pat is as a son of William Baldwin Buchanan and his wife Catherine Elizabeth, and grew up in a family with six brothers and two sisters. Pat is of mixed ancestry; his father is of Irish, English and Scottish ancestry, while his mother had German blood in her veins.

Pat went to Gonzaga College High School, a Catholic school operated by Jesuits, and after matriculation enrolled at Georgetown University, from which he received a bachelor’s degree in American studies. After that, he was nominated for the Reserve Officers Training Corps, but wasn’t part of the program due to reactive arthritis. Instead, he continued his education as he enrolled at Columbia University, receiving master’s degree in journalism after two years of studies.

Pat became a part of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat at only 23 years old, and the magazine published rewritten material of Pat’s thesis trade between Canada and Cuba, under the title “Canada Sells to Red Cuba — And Prospers”. He was then promoted to assistant editorial page editor, and became a supporter of Barry Goldwater and his presidential campaign. In 1966 he was hired by Richard Nixon to be the first adviser on his presidential campaign, and traveled with Nixon for the next two years. Once the Nixon was elected president, Pat worked as White House adviser and speechwriter for Nixon himself – and also for Vice President Spiro Agnew – even during the Watergate scandal, but escaped any accusation of any wrongdoings. Following Nixon’s resignation, Pat stayed in the White House for a short time, serving as special assistant for incoming President Gerald Ford. After that he switched his calling and became news commentator and broadcaster, but returned to White House in 1985 to work as Communication director under President Ronald Reagan, which further increased his net worth.

To speak of his career on television, Pat was the host of the CNN’s program “Crossfire” from 1982 until 2005, and was a political analyst on MSNBC from 2002 until 2012, when he was fired by the channel’s director for alleged racist slurs.

Nevertheless, he found engagement at Fox News soon after, and since then has contributed to the channel, appearing on numerous programs, which has only further increased his net worth.

Pat also tried himself in the politics, running for presidential selection as a Republican two times, and once as a president of the Reform Party, but wasn’t successful.

He has started The American Conservative Magazine, and has also written for such publications as Human Events, The Nation, National Review and Rolling Stone among others. Pat has also authored over ten books, including “The New Majority: President Nixon at Mid-Passage” (1973), “A Republic, Not an Empire” Reclaiming America’s Destiny” (1999), “State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America” (2006), “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?” (2011), and “The Greatest Comeback” (2014), the sales of which have certainly increased further his net worth.

Regarding his personal life, Pat has been married to Shelley Ann Scarney since 1971.

Looks like we don't have Pat Buchanan salary information. Sorry!

1 Has left MSNBC [February 17, 2012].
2 Editor of The American Conservative.
3 Former communications director for President Ronald Reagan.
4 Was friends with journalist Hunter S. Thompson.
5 His father had Scottish, English, and Irish ancestry, and his mother was of German descent. Through his mother, he is a fourth cousin, twice removed, of singer Marilyn Manson. Pat's great-great-great-grandparents, Johannes Schoeppner and Katharine Heil, were also Marilyn's paternal great-great-great-great-great-grandparents.
6 Older brother of Bay Buchanan.
7 While giving a speech at West Michigan University in March 2005, he was attacked by a left-wing activist, who hurled salad dressing on him during a question-and-answer session and screamed, "Stop the bigotry!" Buchanan cut his appearance short, stating, "Thank you all for coming, but I'm going to have to get my hair washed". He declined to press assault charges against the attacker, who disapproved of Buchanan's appearance falling on the birthday of the late labor leader Cesar Chavez.
8 Though widely criticized by the Left for his use of the term "culture war" to describe the widening gap between social liberals and social conservatives at the 1992 Republican National Convention, that term is now in common usage by commentators on both the Left and the Right.
9 Signed on with MSNBC to do a two-hour talk/debate show with liberal counterpart Bill Press (like Buchanan, an alumnus of CNN's Crossfire (1982)). The show, Buchanan & Press (2002), premiered on July 15th of this year. [June 2002]
10 Served in both the Nixon and Reagan Presidential administrations, and has been a pundit on such shows as Crossfire (1982) (which he created with fellow journalist/commentator Thomas Braden), The McLaughlin Group (1982) and The Capital Gang (1988).
11 Lives in Langley, Virginia with his wife. Is one of nine children from a conservative Irish-Catholic family.
12 Author of several books, including 'A Republic, not an Empire' (1999), and 'The Death of the West' (2001). Had two failed bids for the Republican Presidential nomination in 1992 and 1996, then quit the Republican Party to run for the Reform Party Presidential nomination, which he won in 2000. He received less than 1% of the total vote in the 2000 Presidential election.
13 Attended Gonzaga High School.

1 Bill Clinton's foreign policy experience stems mainly from having breakfast at the International House of Pancakes.
2 To most Americans, Canada is sort of like a case of latent arthritis. We really don't think about it unless it acts up.
3 To me, abortion is the greatest evil on the American continent since slavery.
