Buchanan's dot-com failure. (Originally posted 10/17/02 at 8:35 a.m.) Taki Theodoracopulos, the co-editor of Pat Buchanan's new American Conservative magazine and the money behind the operation, turns out to be a cheap bastard. The magazine's on the Web at the unwieldy address of www.amconmag.com. If you type in the much-easier-to-remember www.americanconservative.com -- as I did, hoping to avoid Googling it -- you're greeted with a pop-up window informing you that the domain name can be had for just $6,000. (Hey, Victor Navasky: Can the Nation scrape up the dough? Could be part of an entertaining fundraising campaign.) Aside from that, only some of AC's content is actually available on its website. The only piece I want to read -- an antiwar screed by Nicholas von Hoffman -- isn't. Damn.
