The Weekly Standard may be shutting down

The Weekly Standard, a conservative magazine critical of President Trump that has been printing since 1995, may be shutting down its operations, according to two reports on Tuesday.

"Multiple sources tell me that neocon magazine @weeklystandard is expected to close its operations in a few weeks," wrote One America reporter Emerald Robinson on Tuesday afternoon.

The report echoes one from CNN that the fate of the Weekly Standard is "uncertain" due to its inability to find a prospective buyer.

CNN reports that the chairman of the Standard's publisher, MediaDC, has asked to meet with editor-in-chief Stephen Hayes, and that the entire staff of the publication be made available for that meeting, which is "tentatively scheduled" for late next week. 

The reports come as Clarity Media Group, which serves as the parent company of the Standard, announced that the conservative weekly magazine the Washington Examiner would be relaunching with a broader national distribution.
