IDAHO FALLS, Idaho – Conservative magazine Human Events may have to close if a buyer is not found, according to a Tuesday afternoon Politico post.

The publication, a longtime favorite of the conservative movement, may be experiencing trouble with finances. The Politico post also suggests edgier conservative publications like the Daily Caller or the Washington Free Beacon may be leaving Human events in the dust.

Here’s the rundown:

“We’re trying to figure out the right thing to do with a property that is sort of the cornerstone of the conservative movement,” Joe Guerriero, an executive at Eagle Publishing, the parent company of Human Events, said Thursday.

“We have a number of parties that are really interested in its property,” he added. “I mean, I have literally been on a couple calls today with potential buyers of Human Events.”

Watchdog.org has partnered with Human Events on a few projects, including a weekly rundown of swing states during last year’s presidential election. The publication, founded in 1944, occasionally features columns and articles from Watchdog.org writers and columnists.

Let’s hope, for the sake of the media, that someone swoops in to rescue the publication. We need more voices, not less.
