[Ed. – Worth a look even if Goldberg has lost his bona fides.]
Former National Review columnist Jonah Goldberg and Steve Hayes of the now-defunct Weekly Standard have launched a conservative media company called The Dispatch.
“We aim to make The Dispatch a place that thoughtful readers can come for conservative, fact-based news and commentary that doesn’t come either through the filter of the mainstream media or the increasingly boosterish media on the right. Importantly, we want to build a genuine community, with regular engagement between those of us who work here and the readers and listeners who will pay our salaries,” Goldberg and Hayes write on the company’s website.
Visitors to the site can choose to read content for free initially or purchase a “Founders Membership” for $1,500, which provides a lifetime membership and other perks including “priority access to meet-ups, events, conference call with top staffers” and “access to robust members-only discussion room.”
