Editor’s Note:

As with our December newsletter, I have been unable to distribute our January newsletter to our mailing list due to computer problems. Rather than delay it any longer, I have decided simply to publish it on our front page.

Trevor Lynch’s review of the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo remains our top article for the second consecutive month. Irmin Vinson on Hitler, Gregory Hood on Scarface, and Daniel Michaels on Stalin’s plan to conquer Europe remain some of our most popular essays. Jef Costello, Andrew Hamilton, and Greg Johnson each had 3 articles in our top 20. Matt Parrott and Trevor Lynch have two each.

Five of our top 20 articles are about films: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Scarface, Fight Club, Pulp Fiction, and No Country for Old Men. Hollywood and the television industry are the primary media of anti-white propaganda. Racially conscious analyses of movies and TV are thus highly effective at drawing traffic and combating enemy propaganda. (See Trevor Lynch, “Why I Write.”)

4. Announcing Counter-Currents Radio

On January 17, 2012, Mike Polignano and I launched Counter-Currents Radio, a weekly interview podcast. In addition to recordings of the interviews, we also make transcripts available. Our first three interviewees are Yoav Shamir, director of Defamation, Kevin MacDonald, author of The Culture of Critique, and Andy Nowicki, author of The Columbine Pilgrim and Under the Nihil. Podcasts go online every Tuesday evening. You can subscribe to them with iTunes.

    Encouraging numbers! If I may ask, what is the difference between Pages viewed and “Hits”?

      A hit is every time the server is queried for information, which happens when a page is viewed, but also happens with photos load, etc.
