About Spectator USA

Spectator USA is a new website from the world’s oldest weekly magazine.

The Spectator was established in 1828, and is the best-written and most influential weekly in the English language. Our writers have no party line; their only allegiance is to clarity of thought, elegance of expression and independence of opinion. Our writers opinions range from left to right, their circumstances from high life to low life. None make any pretence at being impartial: our motto is ‘firm, but unfair’.

For 190 years, The Spectator has been producing some of the sharpest, funniest and best-written journalism. Now we want to do more of the same for an American audience. Spectator USA covers politics, culture and life in America. We also offer American readers the best articles from the British Spectator on world affairs. Our magazine’s reputation is founded on our unique approach to the art of journalism and the many brilliant writers we’ve published down the years: GK Chesterton, John Buchan, Graham Greene, John Betjeman, Evelyn and Auberon Waugh, Ian Fleming, Henry Fairlie, Alexander Chancellor, Iris Murdoch, Christopher and Peter Hitchens, Peregrine Worsthorne, Michael Lewis, Mark Steyn, Rod Liddle, Lionel Shriver…we could go on.

The Spectator is pro-America and pro-Americans. At a time when the 45th President often appears to have made the world go mad, we promise not to be crazily for or crazily against the Donald. We promise always to see that the world is far bigger than politics. Spectator USA, like its mothership, looks at all things. We find life amusing, and we never confuse the serious with the dull.

We are a member of IPSO, the independent press regulator, and abide by the Editor’s Code. We also uphold strict standards of accuracy. Any comments or complaints can be sent to or in writing to
