is an online magazine with commentary and analysis on current news from a free-market
TCS is an initialism
that now stands for "Technology, Commerce, Society"; when the Web site was founded in 2000, those three letters stood for its original name, "Tech Central Station." The journal was originally published by DCI Group
, a lobbying and PR firm based in Washington, D.C.
. In 2006, it was sold to Nick Schulz
, who had been its editor since 2001. Before the sale, it was "hosted" by James K. Glassman
, a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute
and syndicated columnist. In 2006, he left TCS to become editor of The American
; Schulz, while continuing to operate TCS, followed Glassman to The American
and soon replaced him as that magazine's editor.
In its original incarnation, TCS was primarily funded by sponsors that included AT&T
, The Coca-Cola Company
, General Motors Corporation
, and PhRMA
. However, according to the website, the sale of the journal in 2006 rendered all previous sponsorships expired.
