The Weekly Standard, a conservative media outlet that has been critical of President Trump, announced Friday that it will terminate after 23 years.

Founder and editor-at-large of the magazine Bill Kristol tweeted this morning:

In the Trump era, the Standard has been one of the few conservative voices critical of the President. Larry speaks with The Hill’s media analyst Joe Concha about what the demise of the Weekly Standard says about state of play in the conservative media circle.
