I mean, this makes no sense.
New TNR editor wants diverse staff, to stop repping “the views of 1 privileged class” or appeal to “small demographic of political elites”

Representing the views of one privileged class and appealing to a small demographic of political elites is the entire point of The New Republic. It certainly wasn’t to make money: people don’t make money in that particular business. The goal is to shape the way that a particular group of people – people who are, let us not forget, powerful and influential – think. If you’re not in it for that, why take a magazine that was doing that and try to turn it into something that it’s not?
…Oh. Right. Chris Hughes is insecure about his accomplishments and abilities. Sorry, my bad.
PS: Honestly, *I* could run TNR better than these people – and that’s ‘better’ by their own definitions – and I’m a conservative Republican.
