Concerns about the Weekly Standard?

Newsmax reports that the Weekly Standard has been sold to Billionaire Philip Anschutz. The magazine has always been the voice of moderate conservatism and routinely publishes articles of the highest order. Why is the sale to Anschutz a potential problem? According to the story, Anschutz
...has also helped fund the Discovery Institute, which promotes intelligent design and criticizes evolution, and the Parents Television Council, an organization that protests against what it views as television indecency.
Hopefully, the well-reasoned conservative writings will continue unabated, but it is possible that articles of a not-so-well-reasoned nature might find their way into the magazine. I hope not. I read the WS to get away from the usual conservative associations.
