The conservative online community RedState.com and Eagle Publishing, parent company of Human Events, today entered into a new partnership. RedState.com will become the newest member of Eagle Publishing’s family of publications and websites on January 2.
“We are excited to be working in parallel with RedState and look forward to applying our efforts and resources to bolster its standing as the premier conservative grassroots community,” said Stephen O’Connor, publisher of Human Events.
RedState posted news of the announcement earlier today. The site’s managing editor, Erick-Woods Erickson, said the new arrangement would provide RedState with the resources it needs to continue playing a leading role in the conservative movement.
“Becoming part of Eagle Publishing, a long-standing, respected leader of conservative publishing, is an exciting opportunity for us,” Erickson said in a press release. “With the resources of a committed and innovative company behind it, we will take the site to an even higher, more effective level.”
RedState was originally launched in 2004 as a website devoted to the conservative principles of life and individual freedom, one that welcomes individuals from throughout the political spectrum and could lead the way in building a new online grassroots providing support for strong, thoughtful, pro-American values.
O’Connor said, “Human Events and RedState will benefit tremendously from a linked partnership by bringing together the integrity and depth of our conservative news organization with a vibrant national audience of grassroots activists who share our vision of an America that favors limited constitutional government, private enterprise and individual freedom.”
Eagle Publishing’s family of publications includes Human Events, Regnery Publishing and the Conservative Book Club. The company also publishes Robert Novak’s Evans-Novak Political Report and Newt Gingrich’s Winning the Future.
