"The Weekly Standard, a conservative publication known for being critical of President Donald Trump and a key intellectual force behind the disastrous U.S. war in Iraq, is set to close after 23 years.
Clarity Media Group, which owns Standard publisher MediaDC, announced Friday that the magazine’s final issue will publish on Monday, according to CNN.
'For more than twenty years The Weekly Standard has provided a valued and important perspective on political, literary and cultural issues of the day,' Ryan McKibben, chairman of MediaDC, said in a press release. 'The magazine has been home to some of the industry’s most dedicated and talented staff and I thank them for their hard work and contributions, not just to the publication, but the field of journalism.'
Staffers have known something 'bad' was coming since at least last week, when Clarity Media revealed it was 'exploring a number of possibilities' for the publication, according to Politico. The magazine’s founder, William Kristol, had already publicly floated a possible sale or merger with its expanding sister publication, the Washington Examiner."
