Hitchens to End Column at The Nation

Filed at 10:51 a.m. ET

NEW YORK (AP) -- Christopher Hitchens, longtime conservative columnist for
The Nation, is leaving the liberal weekly publication.

Hitchens writes in the Oct. 14 issue that it would be ``false to continue
the association'' with the magazine.

Hitchens, who has written his ``Minority Report'' column for 20 years,
favored the impeachment of former President Clinton and has been a
supporter of the war on terror and a military action against Iraq. Those
positions differ from those of the nation's editorial leadership, including
publisher Victor Navasky.
