The new New Republic

I thought I would wait until the second issue before offering an opinion.  I really like it.  I like almost everything in there, though I thought the opening issue interview with President Obama was a bit of a softball.  They have kept the genius of Jed Perl and they appear to have culled some of the weaker writers from the previous incarnation.  I can imagine reading almost everything they are printing, even if I don’t always get to it.  It still feels like The New Republic in a useful way.

Their web site is here, although there is much more in the print edition (I don’t yet understand their policies for when things go on-line, noting that the blame there probably lies with me).

I hope Chris Hughes knows that my liking it probably means it is financially doomed.  And I fear that its being good may not matter so much any more.
