On "The Nation" Versus "The New Republic" Versus "The Weekly Standard"
If those are my choices, I would definitely take "The New Republic". Yes, it's about several degrees to the left of where I am generally but at least it isn't a socialist rag like "The Nation" (really, Naomi Klein?) or a neoconservative template for endless wars like "The Weekly Standard". That, and the magazine has had some very good writers over the years; from Charles Krauthammer to Michael Kinsley to Peter Beinhart.
