“Acid-tongued contrarian” Christopher Hitchens‘ departure ends a 20-year relationship that has grown increasingly rancorous over the last few years, notes David Carr. The Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel says: “I regret that he is leaving after more than 20 years. We have enjoyed publishing someone who has always had the freedom to write what they wanted and challenge many of our readers’ assumptions. We will miss his eloquent and passionate voice.”
