I'm a writer whose credits include The Atlantic, The American Spectator, the Claremont Institute and Doublethink Online.
I'd be grateful to anyone willing to discuss their opinion, positive or negative, of Human Events. A piece I'm researching requires me to better understand who reads the publication and what conservatives generally think about it.
I can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m not a regular reader of HE but it’s a great publication.
I’ve never heard of it.
I get mine every Monday and read it from cover to cover, except for the advertisements of male enhancement. Terrel, Coulter, Novak (until last week) were my favorites.
Welcome to Free Republic.
It’s a good publication, older than the hills. They still publish Pat Buchanan articles, though, and he went nuts years ago. You read it for the good, and disregard the bad.
Could be a fun thread. Using FR as a lazy guys’ resource without actually coming here to be a freeper out of conviction probably won’t work. Read. Lurk. Get your own impressions. Does Human Events allow full post/ excerpts/ links?
If it was Ronald Reagan’s favorite magazine (and it was)—that’s enough of a recommendation for me!
Conor Friedersdorf is a journalist who splits his time between New York City and California. He formerly worked for the Los Angeles Newspaper Group as a reporter, blogger and columnist, and now attends New York University's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences in the Department of Journalism.
How do we know that you are THE Conor Friedersdorf? You should at least consider getting your own domain name instead of relying on gmail.
Whoever you are, Human Events is a solid conservative publication.
You're right, if you have the patience and endurance to read through some of Conor Friedersdorf's articles on The Huffington Post.
HE is an excellent newspaper, with a strong Conservative message.
See my post #14.
my husband and i are conservatives... we like it... we’re also Christian homeschoolers... (but we didn’t vote for Mike Huckabee) if that gives you an idea of whom we are...
Your credits also include the hateful Huff Puff Post.
As a suggestion, check the home pages of those that respond to you.
Click on their screen names and it will take you to their “about” page.
Some will have created a page, some haven’t.
I’d say a lot of us are “Flyover Americans” even though we live all across the USA.
