Power Line

Power Line is an American political publication, providing news and commentary from a conservative point-of-view. It was originally written by three lawyers who attended Dartmouth College together: John H. Hinderaker, Scott W. Johnson, and Paul Mirengoff.

Mirengoff left the blog shortly after writing a January, 2011 post on a Tucson memorial service honoring those who died as the result of shootings at a Gabrielle Giffords rally; in his post he criticized the inclusion of Native American rituals. The post was later removed, but days later Mirengoff left the blog, and in announcing his exit thanked Hinderaker, Johnson, and the readers for the opportunity of participating in the blog. When Mirengoff left the site, Hinderaker and Johnson recruited Steven Hayward to replace him. On Apr 20, 2012, Mirengoff rejoined the site, saying "My return to blogging coincides with my retirement from the practice of law. With all that extra time on my hands, I hope to be a better, more productive blogger this time around." The site is published by Publir, founded by Joe Malchow, another Dartmouth College graduate. The site gained wide recognition for its role in covering the Killian documents scandal that eventually led to the departure of Dan Rather from the CBS Evening News. The blog was founded in late May 2002. Audience estimates suggest that the column has eight million pageviews per month, making it one of the largest blogs.

In 2004, Power Line was named Time magazine's first-ever "Blog of the Year." When AOL added blogs to their news website in 2007, Power Line was one of the five blogs included. A 2007 memo from the National Republican Senatorial Committee described Power Line as one of the five best-read national conservative blogs.

The authors also write for newspapers and magazines, appear on radio and television. Hinderaker and Johnson are fellows of the Claremont Institute.

Famous quotes containing the words line and/or power:

    Today, the notion of progress in a single line without goal or limit seems perhaps the most parochial notion of a very parochial century.
    Lewis Mumford (1895–1990)

    His nature is too noble for the world;
    He would not flatter Neptune for his trident,
    Or Jove for’s power to thunder.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
