Phil Anschutz and Media DC Are About to Make a Big Mistake

They own the publication that owns the most interesting conversation in the run up to 2020.

It is, of course, none of my business. But word is coming that Phil Anschutz's Media DC is more likely than not about…

Under Steve Hayes's leadership as editor, the Weekly Standard has generated original reporting, solid profiles of candidates, become a must follow site related to polling trends, developed some podcasts that have attracted large followings, and otherwise distinguished itself as a Trump skeptical right-of-center publication at a time that this very conversation is about to become the most important conversation in America. On top of that, Hayes has fought off the pixel pirates who want to crap up sites with banner ads, pop up ads, and garbage placements of unrelated things. The Weekly Standard's redesign was a great success.
