When you get Slate, you get to the point.
The Slate ® online magazine delivers concise, insightful, and sometimes uproarious content that gives readers an informed perspective on news, politics, and culture using the Internet. Former editor of the New Republic and co-host of CNN's Crossfire, Michael Kinsley leads a formidable editorial team of columnists and contributors, including media veterans and talented newcomers. Slate is favored by influential, affluent, and educated readers. In short, it's got a coveted Internet audience including business leaders and political decision-makers. Slate looks at what matters in the week's major events while unraveling the media's "spin."
Slate contains five unique sections.
News and Politics catches you up on the news of the week and offers longer, more in-depth coverage of current events. This is where you'll find Slate's news and political contributors—including Jacob Weisberg, Slate's chief political correspondent; David Plotz, who writes a weekly assessment of people in the news; William Saletan, who writes a weekly "Frame Game" column; Tim Noah's "Chatterbox"; Michael Kinsley on issues of the day, and much more.
Art and Life includes "Dialogues" and "Dispatches," e-mail reports from debates on issues of the day and newsworthy locales, along with coverage and critiques of movies, books, sports, food and wine, and the arts.
Sports offers analysis with an attitude, written by fervent sports fans. Whether you fancy yourself a "Tuesday Morning Quarterback" or an ardent baseball fan, Slate's clever sports commentary is unlike any you'll find in the usual magazines.
Business includes analysis of the business world in "Moneybox," sharp-eyed reviews of TV advertisements in "Ad Report Card," and more.
Technology explains the world of high tech, from new Web sites to Internet technologies, gadgets, and more.
