American Prospect

From their website:

The American Prospect’s mission is summed up in the phrase “liberal intelligence” that runs under the logo on the magazine’s cover. We aim to advance liberal and progressive goals through reporting, analysis, and debate about today’s realities and tomorrow’s possibilities.

Founded in 1990 by Robert Kuttner, Paul Starr, and Robert Reich, the Prospect publishes print and digital editions of the magazine four times a year. The online Prospect offers additional coverage and commentary on a daily basis. Kuttner and Starr, the magazine’s original co-editors, resumed their roles as of the fall 2014 issue.

From its inception, the Prospect has had a prescriptive focus that distinguishes it from many other publications. The Prospect also seeks to develop young writers, in part through the Writing Fellows program that we established in 1997. We take as much pride in the young journalists who started out at the magazine as we do in the many well-recognized figures whose work appears in our pages.

Independently published on a nonprofit basis, the Prospect earns some of its income from subscriptions and advertising but also depends on grants and individual donations.
