Good luck from an enemy to the American Prospect in finding support to keep publishing. Political and ideological magazines are vital.

Prospect editors "thought it was important to be fair to the staff, to let them know there was a possibility that if we didn't fill it, the Prospect's last issue as currently constituted would be the July/August issue." The Prospect, which has a robust website, publishes 10 print issues annually; the July/August double issue closes in late May. In addition to filling the funding gap, the magazine is looking to raise another $500,000 in pledged support for 2012 by the end of June, according to Rachlis.
