  • Great magazine ((Too bad they don't make it available in Canada))
    I love the Weekly Standard. It's a great magazine. I love it and it is highly recommended....more info
  • Good for keeping up on corporate PR
    The Weekly Standard is where the advocates of militarism and corporatism share the thoughts cobbled together by various industry lawyers, think tanks, and PR agents PR! - A Social History of Spin.
    It is regularly promoted through other avenues of right-wing cultism, like the Limbaugh show and all the little Limbaughs Echo Chamber: Rush Limbaugh and the Conservative Media Establishment.
    Like any propaganda, it should be monitored to see how the spin doctors of the right-wing establishment are deceiving those who subscribe to the values of elitism, imperialism, and other ugly aspects of the American empire Killing Hope: U.S. Military and C.I.A. Interventions Since World War II-Updated Through 2003.

    For people who are interested in the real world, I'd recommend:
    The Conservative Nanny State: How the Wealthy Use the Government to Stay Rich and Get Richer
    Free Lunch: How the Wealthiest Americans Enrich Themselves at Government Expense (and Stick You with the Bill)
    Why We Fight

  • One of the best
    Its a good magazine that doesn't have hysterical or over hyped pieces. While I do not always agree with the conclusions of the writers, the magazine does what Time, Newsweek etc do not do. Make one think. I also applaud them for being honest and having articles taking the currant administration to task for failings and for being honest in challenging conservatives to get their act together. While William Kristol and Fred Barnes are often noted as being the most notable at the magazine I actually like other writers like John Simon, William Doino Jr, Vance Serchuk (who wrote a great review of a book I own The White Man's Burden Why the West's Efforts to Aid the Rest Have Done So Much Ill and So Little Good by William Easterly),John Podhoretz, Gerard Alexander. Now I know as far as subscriptions go the price may seem high. But I suggest you subscribe and then donate the copies to your local library. They will appreciate the gift. I also have to note that I really love the artists who do the covers and that as a subscriber I can also read issues online....more info
  • One of the better conservative publications
    Along with National Review, the Weekly Standard is one of the most popular and influential conservative magazines out there. While it tends to promote the same issues of NR (and even uses many of the same writers), the Weekly Standard tends to be the more partisan of the two. While NR often takes the more intellectual approach to the modern day issues, the Weekly Standard has always tended to go more for the gut. Both magazines, however, do an outstanding job promoting and defending conservative positions and, as a bonus, both can be wickedly funny. I especially enjoy the Weekly Standard's Scrapbook, a regular column where some of the more bizarre and inane actions of the left are given proper exposure. As well, the Weekly Standard's book and movie reviews are, at times, superior even to National Review's. As a magazine, the Weekly Standard is a must for conservatives and will probably be enjoyed by moderates (and perhaps even open-minded liberals) with a sense of humor. As for those you who are still bemoaning the results of the Florida recount and wishing Clinton could have had a third term -- well, I think Mother Jones is still looking for subscribers......more info
  • Weekly Standard - a MUST for conservatives!
    I cannot go a week without my Weekly Standard (well maybe the 2 weeks they seem to take vacation in the summer) I would recommend it to even my liberal friends (if they were open-minded enough to read it!)...more info
