The American Prospect Will Fold Unless it Comes up With $500,000

The American Prospect, the liberal magazine that publishes 10 times a year, is in dire straits. The Huffington Post reports that, unless the title comes up with about $500,000, the July/August issue, which closes in May, will be its last.

Kit Rachlis, the American Prospect’s Editor-in-Chief, is currently pulling out all the stops to make sure that doesn’t happen. She told HuffPo that staffers are “making an all-points effort to fill that gap with individual donors, institutional donors, as well as readers and subscribers.”

If you think the American Prospect hasn’t made much of an impact, thus it won’t be missed, here are just a few journalists who got their start there: Ezra KleinSuzy Khimm, Joshua GreenNick Confessore, Garance Franke-Ruta, Jonathan Chait and Ann Friedman.
