Political Animal


December 26, 2012 4:36 PM Antidote To Hackery

By Ed Kilgore

Insofar as there is enough hackishness in contemporary American political journalism to keep Alex Pareene angrily busy with his lists, every thinking citizen has a stake in supporting something better. The Washington Monthly is something a lot better. Aside from the features that have made the magazine famous, and the book reviews that have made it distinctive—and oh yeah, some online offerings such as Political Animal—the Monthly represents a living tradition of independent journalism well worth keeping alive.
