What the Fate of The New Republic Reveals

Russ Douthat at The New York Times.
"The New Republic as-it-was, the magazine I and others grew up reading, was emphatically not just a 'policy magazine.' It was, instead, a publication that deliberately integrated its policy writing with often-extraordinary coverage of literature, philosophy, history, religion, music, fine art.

"It wasn’t just a liberal magazine, in other words; it was a liberal-arts magazine, which unlike many of today’s online ventures never left its readers with the delusion that literary style or intellectual ambition were of secondary importance, or that today’s fashions represented permanent truths."

P.S. Any suggestions of other print or online publications that could be considered a 'liberal-arts magazine'?
