Fred Reed (born 1945 in Crumpler, West Virginia) is a technology columnist for The Washington Times[1] and the author of Fred on Everything, a weekly independent column. He also writes books and other material. He has also written for The American Conservative[2] and[3] A former Marine, Reed is a police writer, an occasional war correspondent, and an aficionado of raffish bars. His work, written in a unique and articulate style, is often satirical and opinionated.

He got his start doing military columns and retired from national syndication to write travel books. He is now back as a columnist.

Reed notes that his columns are often provocative, and calls himself "an equal-opportunity irritant." His output does not fit into any conventional political classification, including attacks on feminism[4] (generally the proviso of the right), George W. Bush[1](generally the proviso of the left), Israel and American Jews and evolution[5] (generally the proviso of religious fundamentalists). Many of Reed's articles speak of a yearning for a simpler time, and urge the reader to forgo the pursuit of money and comforts in favor of a cultured life of the mind.

Reed is currently living in Mexico as an American expatriate.
