American Spectator - American Spectator had its origin in Indiana in 1972 where it began
as The Alternative. By 1977 it became known as The American Spectator, with a conservative
perspective as an alternative to the radicalism of the 60's. From Supreme Court appointee
coverage of Clarence Thomas, to Clinton administration dalliances, the journal has always
been willing to tackle controversy with a wit and edge not found in other journals. It is published
out of Washington, D.C. and continues its leading conservative political ideology.

independent Catholic journal of opinion in the United States . Founded in 1924 by Michael
Williams, its goal was to be a weekly review expressive of the Catholic in covering literature,
the arts, religion, society, and politics. Never bound by a strict ideology, Commonweal (the
common) became a forum for thoughtful, urbane discussion, largely from a liberal, reformist
point of view, and has had a distinguished roster of editors and writers.

both from Stalinism and McCarthyism. Dissent is one of America's leading intellectual journals
