Bill Kristol Steps Down as Editor of the Weekly Standard

Well, this is interesting. Bill Kristol is stepping down as editor of The Weekly Standard and moving to the position of editor at large. I don’t know if this was in the works or the result of Kristol’s NeverTrump missteps and miscalculations. His replacements, Steven Hayes and Richard Starr, may only be marginally better issues wise if at all, but this represents one more major neocon figure waning in influence, and that is a good thing.

One Response to Bill Kristol Steps Down as Editor of the Weekly Standard

  1. The Weekly Standard was established in 1995 as a vanity mouthpiece financed by Rupert Murdoch that has never actually made money, losing about a million a year. After Murdoch bought the WSJ in 2007, he lost interest in the smaller publication and sold it to Clarity Media. Co-founder Kristol is now 63. It’s probably just his transition into retirement.
