The Nation: Still Leaning Left, as of 2003

Yesterday, our friends from The Nation, sent us a warm thank you note for “making our first ever Nation Associates membership drive a big success! This is your Nation, and your commitment during this critical election year will help us continue to do what we do best — speak truth to power.”

The email included a sweet photo of the staff of the good ship Nation listing port-ward, captain Victor Navasky standing confidently in the center. The caption reads: “Our entire Nation staff, still leaning left thanks to you!”

It’s always nice to be thanked, but according to a former Nation staffer seen beaming in the photo, the picture’s five years old. A few of those left-leaning staffers have since gone on to other jobs, including at the The Observer.
