American Thinker labeled

By

Martin Bright, political editor of the UK New Statesman, has written a column in the Sunday edition of the UK Guardian (called The Observer on Sundays) in which he calls The American Thinker a "neocon journal." While we think the label is not very useful, and often simply a way of calling someone or something "Jewish" without actually involing the J—word, the reference is not particularly unflattering. We had published an article praising the usually left—leaning Bright. He is surprised and slightly disconcerted, it seems, to be praised by certain people.

...right—wing plaudits for my work keep coming in, not just in this country but from America, too, where none other than David Frum, the neoconservative Bush adviser credited with coining 'axis of evil', has begun quoting my work approvingly. Neocon journal American Thinker ran a 2,500—word analysis of my findings. While any attention is always welcome, these offers of solidarity are also a challenge.

We are always happy to be juxtaposed with David Frum.

Meanwhile, in his Calgary Sun column, contributor Paul Jackson puts us in some very nice company, too:

Sometimes its hard for me to concentrate on my latest edition of William F. Buckley's National Review, Thomas Lifson's The American Thinker, The New York Review of Books, and Forbes magazine —— all of which impart to me knowledge unattainable to the general masses.
