The New Republic gets a new owner

Jon Chait informs us that his previous employer has been bought by a co-founder of Facebook, Chris Hughes, whom maybe I would recognize if I'd seen that movie.

I have something of a love-hate thing for TNR, which is like the little girl in the Longfellow doggerel—when it's good, it's very very good, and when it's bad, it's horrid. So cautiously hoping for the best here. Showing Marty "Palestinians Are Savages" Peretz the door would be a good sign.

  1. Anderson, check out that movie, it is one of the best to come out in the past 15-20 years. Excellent script, camerawork, and editing. Always a good combination for a film.

    Oh, and this is Phil Woods.
