Townhall.com Launches Print Magazine Spinoff

0109townhall.jpegRight wing-leaning website Townhall.com has just completed the first issue of their print edition. Samir Husni quoted the editor’s letter from EIC Chuck DeFeo in the (print-only) first issue:

The media landscape of today has grown so wide and so fast paced that it is difficult to keep up with it all. As we looked to 2008 we saw an opportunity to provide something that captures the myriad of voices and distills it into one product.

Of course, turning blogs into print magazines has a poor track record… So we’ll see what happens with this one.

Fun fact: Townhall.com is itself a spinoff of another right wing mag, the National Review.
