"The New Republic is a kind of public trust...That is something all its previous owners and publishers understood and respected. The legacy has now been trashed, the trust violated. It is a sad irony that at this perilous moment, with a reactionary variant of conservatism in the ascendancy, liberalism’s central journal should be scuttled with flagrant and frivolous abandon. The promise of American life has been dealt a lamentable blow."

- Part of a protest, crying about the virtual destruction of 'The New Republic,' a 100-year old Liberal rag which is going exclusively digital.

Whaaaaa!  Poor babies.

That said, this quote is a perfect definition of Liberalism:  'High ideas over reality.'

But if they want to keep it running the old fashioned way why don't they get a group together to buy it and run it however they wish?  Even if their readership is limited to a few elitist, Liberal turds like themselves?

Oh wait, maybe that's why they aren't buying it.  It's easy to bitch about other people's money - Again, back to the definition of Liberalism.

The other funny thing is most of the signers of this whine-fest have columns which run digitally...Why should their precious 'rag' do any differently?

On another angle, why do they care if the paper-version is going away?  You'd think this 'Who's Who' list of Lefties would be happy to see the forests being saved by not printing to paper.

Nah!  They'd rather Whaaaa!
