Denis Dutton’s Arts & Letters Daily website received a generous write-up in the Voice of America. A&L Daily is a collection of links to interesting (and often incendiary) articles available online, sourced from all over the political spectrum. “I want to have left-wingers, who are devoted to their left-wing publications, by mistake clicking on right-wing publications and broadening their horizons,” says Dutton. “I want to have right-wingers click on the more and find that they’re at Dissent or The Nation and reading the left-wing view. I think it’s much more interesting to be surprised.” In its six years of operation, monthly readership of A&L Daily has jumped from 300 to 300,000.
