Rich Lowry Will be Promoted Out of His Editor Position at National Review, Supposedly So He Can Concentrate on Big-Picture Stuff

I don't know if I believe that the termination of his job overseeing National Review is actually a "promotion," supposedly for an even betterer job overseeing "long-term" initiatives.

It's weird. As you know, I'm Slightly Psychic. All last week, like on five separate incidents, I had this idea that Rich Lowry would be asked to leave his job at NR.

However, my psychic powers, while real, are as weak as ever. I certainly did not expect National Review to double-down on their brand of weak-sister split-the-difference push-corporate-libertarianism-and-rebrand-it-as-Sacred-Principles-Conservatism by installing effeminate NeverTrumper Ramesh Ponuru as the new editor.

As bad as Lowry is, Ponnuru is worse. Lowry at least pretends to care for the opinions and desires of the conservative base. Ponnuru -- of corporate pass-through organization AEI, and leftwing Bloomberg -- is scornful of it and hostile to it.

Supposedly -- and again, I don't know if I believe this -- it's a "growth period" for National Review.

I occasionally read their comments to see how their "evolution" is being greeted. I can definitively state that National Review is experiencing a "growth period" in leftwing commenters imported from places like Slate and Salon.


Rich Lowry, the longtime editor of the conservative opinion magazine National Review, is stepping down from his role overseeing the print publication to focus on more strategic long-term initiatives as the company's editor-in-chief, Lowry tells Axios.

Ramesh Ponnuru, a longtime editor with the outlet, will lead the magazine.
Why it matters: The transition comes amid a growth period for the 65-year-old magazine and now-digital media outlet.

By the numbers: National Review has roughly 110,000 subscribers, about half of which are digital. It's increased digital subscriptions about 30% over the last year.

Note they mean NRPlus. This is not a big deal as it seems, as NRPlus only started in 2018. When you start from zero you have room for growth.

However, this claim would be a big deal:

Total revenue has been up about 20% over the last year, per Lowry, who cited the company's growth in circulation, podcast and email revenue.

If these numbers are true -- I don't see any citation to anyone but Rich Lowry -- then NR is obviously not in the dire financial straits I imagined it was in.

"A few years ago, we had an overall operating loss of almost $2 million," Lowry says. "We have closed the gap considerably the last couple of years and are now much closer to break even."

The company, which is a subsidiary of the nonprofit National Review Institute (NRI), has raised more than $1 million over the last year in small-dollar donations from its readers -- most of it over the last three months.

And how much has it raised in very large donations from corporate clients?

National Review always claims that the magazine itself doesn't take money from Google.

But you know who does? The National Review Institute, which funds the National Review magazine.


Google CEO Sundar Pichai confirmed that the tech giant gave funds to the National Review Institute, the policy arm of establishment conservative magazine National Review -- but there is a discrepancy in Pichai's explanation of why the donation is not listed in the company’s annual transparency report.

Pichai used his written answers to congressional questions to disclose his company’s donation to the National Review Institute, which was revealed by National Review senior editor Jonah Goldberg last year. The Google CEO confirmed the donation, stating that it was made in 2018 and would, therefore, be disclosed in the company’s next report.

"Google has a long history of supporting organizations on all sides of the political spectrum," said Pichai. "Google was one of several corporate sponsors of the National Review Institute's William F. Buckley Prize Dinner in 2018, which is scheduled to be reported in our upcoming transparency report."

But the National Review Institute's website states that it received a donation from Google a year earlier, in 2017. This donation was not disclosed in Google's transparency report for that year.

Google's contributions to the National Review Institute were brought to light by a report in the left-leaning technology magazine Wired, which detailed a number of the tech giant's contributions to establishment conservative institutions in order to fend off tech regulation from Republicans. Other organizations funded by Google include the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI).

National Review subsequently published an article from a senior member of the CEI, arguing against the use of antitrust legislation to break up Google and other big tech companies. The article was published four months after the National Review Institute's 2017 William F. Buckley Prize Dinner, which as the Institute's own website discloses, was sponsored by Google among other companies.

National Review claiming it doesn't get money from Google, when its parent organization does take money from Google and then funds National Review with it, is every bit as absurd a lie as St. Anthony Fauci vowing that his agency doesn't fund the Wuhan lab, because his agency merely funds EcoHealth Alliance, which then takes his money and sends it to Wuhan.

I honestly do not know how they get away with such obvious lies.

Update: Pep notes that this kind of lie is well-tolerated in Media Culture:

PBS claims some very small % of its budget comes from taxpayers. Instead, much of their programming is bought by the Corp. for Public Broadcasting. Guess where their money originates.

16 Well, if the money is growing, that counts.

But seriously: an amusing idea came when Ellen Pao said that deplatforming "works." In terms of keeping ideas off social media, it absolutely does. In terms of drawing down interest in those ideas, it fails spectacularly. The claim is that Infowars has been reduced to less than 1000 viewers on YouTube. In reality, Alex Jones routinely enjoys popular memes, and his appearances on Joe Rogan remain some of that program's most popular shows.

And by using mass scale censorship, the credibility of conspiracy theories enjoys a boost. No one censors total fakes.

92 Lowry is basically a mid-to-late 80's YAF'er that moved to DC and never grew up or read another book after sort of skimming through "God and Man at Yale."

Ponnuru is a more original thinker, but other than being seemingly a pretty solid pro-lifer is a standard-issue urban lib posing as a conservative for marketing differentiation purposes.

So, expect even more of "The Conservative Case for [the thing the other parents at my kid's private school implied I needed to support or I could forget about anymore party invites]."

President Joe Biden will give a speech later this week in an effort to get ahead of an impending summer of violent crime.
"The reason is that there's been actually a rise in crime over the last five years, but really the last 18 months. And so, it's an opportunity for the President to speak to what he's going to do to help address that. And as we've seen around the country, it is a concern of many Americans, Republicans but also Democrats too, not necessarily through a partisan lens.

Some one in the The Corner made the argument that the Constitution doesn't give the Senate the power to place any requirement greater than a majority vote on a President's appointment. Ponnuru's response: "Well, it doesn't say they can't."

195 A wealthy liberal town I lived near had fought tooth and nail against changing the local arterial road into a highway. Instead of 65 MPH with on/off ramps they just kept putting more stop lights until the nominal 40 MPH was really10 MPH and 0 at rush hour.
And they were so so happy. Until GPS became common and suddenly all their "local" roads were full of traffic all day long.

They tried everything they could to keep the working people from driving through their town but they did such a "good" job on the main road that they couldn't actually make their local roads bad enough.

The FAA - and the airlines - need to pull their heads out their collective asses toot sweet. I have nothing to good to say about the CDC, but credit where it is do: they nailed the timing on rolling back mandate guidance. The preference cascade was already underway - though very early - when they backtracked and said, "no masks if vaccinated,. This was a big victory for the CDC, because it looked like they were leading when they were actually being fast-followers.

Once the preference cascade breaks out - and it has - stopping it is impossible without brutal, draconian enforcement. The airline lobbying cartel calling for the FAA to do harder enforcement has major risks. They can't deal with the problem they made without brutal crackdowns, which will make the push-back even worse. The FAA missed it's chance to pretend to lead.

Party organizations are like the plot for the Producers--they are composed of grifters that aim to line their own pockets and those of their friends and winning and losing campaigns is beside the point.

My favorite was when NPR got 100's of millions form Ray Kroc's widdow (McDonald's founder's money). It was enough to cover an entire year's operationg expenses, maybe a bot more. Thought that may they might take a break from one of their listener fundraisers, to thanks them but explain that a portion of the Kroc money would cover that season's doner goals (and tuck away the rest to get interest for ongoing NPR expenses).

Nope. Didn't even make a big deal about it, just tucked away the entire donation and fundraised as usual -- "Give us $80 for a 2-cd Masterpiece Theater series set and we'll send you a travel mug -- we rely on donors like you!!"

(National Review Institute is incorporated as a philanthropy and has fewer than 50 employees, a number of them telecommuters; Lowry last I checked had a compensation package per the IRS 990 of over $300,000 a year.

It would surprise me to discover that the board actually canned him. Boards seldom have a will antagonistic to management.

The
doubling-down is no surprise. Recently Charles CW Cooke, a libertarian
who isn't friendly to Trump but is not fixated on him either,
relinquished his position as editor of <i>National Review
Online</i>. He was replaced by Philip Klein, who actually is
hostile to Trump.

Not many people comment
there any more (the site's been quite buggy for a half-dozen years) and
the residue does consist of liberal loudmouths.

It
should be recalled that twenty years ago, their print subscriber base
was a half-again what they're claiming for print + digital today. And
what they're claiming is not very credible. That they have a gosizdat
foundation of institutional subscriptions I believe, but what's their
constituency otherwise? Stated dissatisfaction for Trump among
self-identified Republicans was in single digits at the end of 2019, no
more prevalent than Republican dissatisfaction with Nixon in 1972,
Reagan in 1984, and Bush II in 2004. There is no popular NeverTrump
constituency. Their stats are bogus.

326 I subscribed to NR back during the Clinton and W admins. It was a waste of money even then.

328 Vdare had a good article recently on how the anti-immigration right was driven out by Buckley.

Buckley was a gritting snake. Not only has all the old stories about him being a man for every woman and a woman for every man started to drift out, he was in bed with as many corporate interests as would make his life comfortable.

Their driving out Peter Brimlow, John Derbyshire, John OSullivan, and Mark Steyn showed early what snakes they were. I was already out the door in the 2010 range, but would peak in for Steyn once and a while. Their gay managing editor throwing Steyn unde the bus was the end.

Since then they have basically alienated Victor Davis Hansen, who I have heard found the culture their to be hostile to him, while pushing Williamson and that deep state sychophant McCarthy. They are hostile to American workers, and full on for the gay and globalist agenda.

I pray for SMOD to have his holy way with them. Sorry Sefton! New York and DC must receive SMODs holy blessing for the country to become Normal again. And probably Silicon Valley too!

330 "National Review claiming it doesn't get money from Google, when its parent organization does take money from Google and then funds National Review with it, is every bit as absurd a lie" as your local PBS station saying it gets no money from the government while being subsidised by the goverment-funded Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

331 Podcasting brings in lots of ad revenue. The Ringer came up with an excellent model. The articles are just quick hits to bring in readers, who they use as audience for their podcasts.

Back in 2017-2018 when Goldberg was still there, he was going around saying the NRO site was getting higher traffic than ever before... and anyone could go on Alexa and see that NRO's taffic had dropped by a third in mid-2016 and never recovered.
They just lie, shamelessly, endlessly.

333 sad to see Rich go. He was the hard-hitting, win at all cost Right-wing advocate, feared by left-wing enemies, beloved by his friends. I'll miss his slashing wit, and full throated defense of all things conservative.

Yeah.

334 My previous comment was satire. In reality, no one will miss Rich Lowry. How can you miss someone who was never there?

Posted by: rcocean at June 22, 2021 07:35 PM (evE25)

335 For the last 20 years, National Review and Rich were the perfect "controlled opposition". Without and fire or wit, and constantly agreeing with the Left on Race, immigration, the Middle East, and every issue important to the Left. They were basically Liberals who supported low taxes and outsourcing. Oh, and giving $$$ to Large Defense contractors.

Losing to the Liberals wasn't a tragedy it was a business strategy.

336 fantastic issues altogether, you just gained a logo new reader.
What may you recommend about your publish that you just made some days ago?
Any certain?
