I Just Had to Laugh. "The Economist" conservative?

Somebody described The Economist as conservative.

The Economist

According to former editor Bill Emmott, "the Economist's philosophy has always been liberal, not conservative."

The Economist editorial stance

"The newspaper defines its point of view as classically liberal. Therefore, its editorial stance tends to take positions that are socially liberal and economically liberal; it generally advocates free markets and the minimum governmental regulation necessary, and then only where unfettered free markets would clearly lead to negative results (such as monopolistic practices)."
