The Beast (newspaper)
|Headquarters||Buffalo, New York, U.S.|
- Not to be confused with The Daily Beast.
The Beast was originally a Buffalo, New York alternative biweekly newspaper which now publishes exclusively online.
The Beast was founded by Matt Taibbi, Kevin McElwee and Paul Fallon in 2002. The format was originally a free biweekly newspaper, but changed in 2007 when it began to charge for issues as a national monthly publication that also offered international subscriptions. In late 2009, The Beast stopped producing print editions, but now actively maintains an online presence with the tagline "The World's Only Website." The Beast's longest-serving editor was Allan Uthman; it is currently edited by Ian Murphy.
An annual feature of The Beast is "The 50 Most Loathsome Americans" - a list of infamous celebrities, authors, athletes, pundits, politicians and others selected for their dubious distinction, with reasons and examples given for each entry's inclusion.
Editor Ian Murphy ran on the Green Party ticket in New York's 26th congressional district special election, 2011 for a seat vacated by Republican Chris Lee.
