More On The American Spectator

The American Spectator is a monthly magazine founded by George Nathan and Truman Newberry in 1924, based in Arlington, Virginia. Conservatively written, the magazine covers current national political news. From 1967 to 1977, the magazine was published with the name “The Alternative: An American Spectator.” After ten years, the name was switched back to the original name because the word ‘alternative’ began to be associated with radical liberals. The American Spectator featured well-known authors such as P.J. O’Rourke, Thomas Sowell, and Tom Wolfe up until the 1980s.
