Smells like old pajamas

Cuck Central is live! All they need to do is add Rod Dreher and they'll be set:
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."

"Everything will remain free for the next few months. Early next year, we’ll begin charging $10 a month or $100 a year for membership," Hayes indicates in an email to new subscribers.

The publication's newsletter will debut on Wednesday, Axios first reported on Tuesday.

National Review's David French will also be joining The Dispatch as senior editor, the news outlet added.

According to Axios, The Dispatch will launch with a full-time staff of eight. It has reportedly raised $6 million from investors ahead of its debut.
It's a blog. A six-million-dollar group blog. I wonder how long it will be before that $6 million from investors is converted into a loan. And it won't surprise me if  it doesn't have as many page views as this totally free blog does.

You always know a publication is going to be full of tedious squishes when it advertises itself as "thoughtful". Because they spend a lot of time thinking very hard about how to be absolutely certain that no one can call them racist.

The "Dispatch." More like the "Cuck-Patch." Another spectacular failure in the making.

Blogger Lovekraft October 09, 2019 12:55 PM  

During the Obama era and earlier, people would automatically assume the site is legit if it has a nice veneer. But now, any site usually has to pass through an unofficial scrutiny. Just a natural response to being fed so many lies.

O/T but military clad gunperson opens fire on a kebab shop in Germany, killing one. I wonder if there is a manifesto circulating.

Clever of them to offer a $1500 lifetime membership, since they’ll likely only be around for a few years.

...soon to be defunct conservative media company called the dispatch.

That's better.

... or purchase a "Founders Membership" for $1,500, which provides a lifetime membership and other perks

My NRA life membership didn't cost nearly that much. But the conservative media company does sound very exciting, riveting no less, so sign me up.

i guess the GE has broken their minds. even sites like drudge report that use to be tolerable are now either full on cuckservative or leftist.

Translation: The Silicon Valley billionaire that financed The Bulwark has found out just how much of a joke it is to everyone to the right of Mitt Romney, so he's trying again.

Don't these guys realize that no matter who wins next November the money will automatically dry up?

The website will go live today, the first in a string of newsletters begins tomorrow, and Goldberg has begun the first podcast, The Remnant.

I swear to god, I first read that last bit as "The Revenant."

Which I honestly think they should use.

Weekly Standard is dead, NR/NRO dying, so let's get the neocucks whose ideas, politics, and writing caused those failures together with a new name. It'll totally work this time!

I expect Williamson to show up any time now. Dreher may have too much sense. I wonder if they can guest articles by Will, Brooks, and Douthat?

George probably wants more money than they're willing to pay right now. But like I said, a guest column would be right up his alley.

Cuck central from the past:

"You must remember about conservatives that in the Nixon crisis, they were among the first to call for his head, afraid he had sullied the party. George Will was among the first to denounce Nixon and was rewarded for his impartiality by getting a column in The Washington Post and then a seat on the David Brinkley show. Republicans were in the ascendance and they feared what Nixon had done would usher in another four-term Democrat. Now, conservatives are on top, having recaptured Congress and are pulling the Democratic President toward the center. It is the Democrats who are clinging to Bill Clinton. If they can't hold the Oval Office in an economic boom, what is to become of them?"
