For decades, The New Republic (founded in 1914 by Walter Lippmann and friends) and The Nation were sister weeklies, peas in a left-liberal pod.
But in the aftermath of the 60s, TNR owner and quondam radical Martin Peretz became an ultra-hardliner on the issues of Israel and the Soviet Union -- for him, as for so many others, really one issue.
And Peretz's TNR writers helped invent the cynical knowingness that defines "neoliberal" discourse -- wittily brushing off most suggestions for social melioration here at home, while often backing Reagan on "defense" and (particularly) the economy.

 Steve and Me - How accurate a portrayal of journalism is Shattered Glass? By David Plotz
In case you are lucky enough to have forgotten, Steve Glass was the young writer caught in 1998 fabricating stories for the New Republic and other magazines.
The movie has New Republic staffers refer to their own magazine, without irony, as "the in-flight magazine of Air Force One." My screening of Shattered Glass was packed with New Republic writers, who snorted when they heard this.
Ray boosts the self-regard of the New Republic in order to make it, and thus the Glass scandal, seem more important to American life than it is. As a result, Shattered Glass misses the fundamentally ironic, self-mocking culture of the magazine: With a few notable exceptions, Washington journalists are less pompous than Shattered Glass suggests.

Powell's presentation was by far the most impressive the administration would make--according to U.S. News and World Report, he junked much of what the CIA had given him to read, calling it "bullshit"--but it was still based on a hyped and incomplete view of U.S. intelligence on Iraq.
Despite repeated assurances of cooperation, TNR has learned that Baute's office received nothing until the day before Powell's presentation, when the U.S. mission in Vienna provided the IAEA with an oral briefing while Baute was en route to New York, leaving no printed material with the nuclear inspectors.
