Collection of issue-based articles from News Weekly archives spanning
Over the last three years, the National Civic Council's News Weekly has
continued to fulfi l the role it has played since the 1940s as a journal of
unadorned news reporting, authoritative commentary and sober analysis of
current issues. As the issues have changed, so has the content of News Weekly
kept pace in tackling the new issues, even as its "point of view", to borrow the
phrase from News Weekly's founder, B.A. Bob Santamaria, has remained steady.
That point of view is derived from the National Civic Council's "Five
Primacies": Defending life, Supporting the family, Assisting small enterprise,
Promoting the national interest, Fostering Judeo-Christian virtues
Under these heads, News Weekly presents trustworthy alternative views to
those generally found in the media on issues as current as same-sex marriage,
transgenderism, climate change, the energy crisis, manufacturing, family
taxation, and much more. Moreover News Weekly also provides a cultural forum
for recovering and illuminating the Western heritage, starting from its true
roots in ancient Greece and Rome.
The writers in The Best of News Weekly include Colin Teese, Peter Westmore,
Patrick J. Byrne, Terri M. Kelleher, Brian Coman, Jeffry Babb, Hal G.P.
Colebatch, Peter Abetz, Chris McCormack, Mark McGovern, Damian Wyld,
Lucy Sullivan, Symeon J. Thompson and David James.
