Conservative Magazines and the Presumption of Liberty: A Content Analysis on Sex, Gambling, and Drugs
By Jason Briggeman
Daniel B. Klein

This article appeared in the Fall 2009 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

More often than not, National Review, The Weekly Standard, The American Spectator, and the now-defunct American Enterprise have failed to oppose government intrusion into America’s bedrooms, gambling places, and drug activities. Whatever political principles these leading conservative magazines have espoused, the presumption of liberty is not among them.
