NR Begging for Cash

Did anybody else get this? Mail from National Review begging for money to upgrade their website.
They sent a tasteful and self-deprecating goofy e-mail, but I can’t shake the feeling that this is not how grown-ups run things.
Sigh.

    I haven’t read the site since they upgraded it to the mess that it is. I also never renewed my print subscription.

  2. NandaNanda says:

    I don’t subscribe, either, but the malady seems contagious…

    I actually do subscribe but Rich Lowry is no WFB.

    WFB would have supported Trump because he always believed in voting for the Republican who could win. I wish he were still alive because I would have loved to read his analysis on election 2016. ):

    Don’t read it, don’t plan to start. Seems more an exercise in faux conservative mental masturbation that spawned a 2nd rate step child and not much more.

      I don’t blame you. I started my subscription in the late 80s after I became a taxpayer in NYC.

      After “Cristo” voted for Obama twice, I lost some serious enthusiasm but I can’t quite abandon the original principles of William and Priscilla.

      Je les adore.

    These days, NR is but a shadow of its former self.

      Sadly, so true and if any of you have read the history of Bill passing the baton, you will find his fatal flaw: He admired youth and dismissed John O’Sullivan who went on to become an adviser to Thatcher.

    NRO is on my “do not resuscitate” list along with Hot Air, Townhall, Red State and several other sites that devolved into NeverTrump bitch-fests over the past year.

    Subscribed to NR for many years. Sad to see its current state.

    BTW hello from a Ricochet link!
