The American Conservative magazine.

The American Conservative (TAC) is a biweekly magazine founded by Scott McConnell, Pat Buchanan, and Taki Theodoracopulos, and edited by McConnell. It is intended to represent a traditionalist, anti-war and paleoconservative voice against the dominance of what its publishers see as a neoconservative establishment. The American Conservative began publishing in 2002. The magazine's editorial stance is differentiated from other conservative movement publications in its opposition to George W. Bush's interventionist foreign policy and his liberal immigration and trade policies.
