What criteria do you have in mind?
According to founder Denis Dutton, Arts & Letters Daily is a web portal for "the kinds of people who subscribe to the New York Review of Books, who read Salon and Slate and The New Republic — people interested in ideas." While the site aggregates links from a variety of perspectives and political dispositions, over time many regular visitors to A&L Daily have observed that it carries a fair number of articles from a libertarian perspective. Many readers also discern a decided "neocon" leaning in its selection of articles relating to international affairs; however in early 2005, Jonah Goldberg, a conservative columnist at The National Review, wrote that Arts & Letters daily had "sort of been sliding to the left...becoming more of a mirror of academic liberal-left haughty sensibilities." Regular contributor to Daily Kos, "Doorguy," called Arts & Letters "the best site for wide-ranging, well-written articles on culture and ideas you'll find anywhere, with occasional ventures into serious contemporary what's-it-all-aboutness. Sort of a Drudge Report for people who enjoy thinking" (June 2, 2006). Dutton has been described as the more conservative of the site's pair of editors, and managing editor Tran Huu Dung as the more liberal.
