The Spotlight previously know for a short period as the National Spotlight was a weekly newspaper publish by the Liberty Lobby from September 17, 1975[1] till 2001. The publication had over 1,350 nonstop issues, unprecedented for an American nationalist publication.[2] The paper ran news and opinion articles with a populist and anti-establishment view on a variety of subjects including race and Zionism. The Spotlight for a while was the most widely-read patriotic periodical in the United States, with circulation peaking over 300,000 in the early 1980s.[3] While circulation experienced a steady drop after that, it continued to be published until Liberty Lobby's demise in 2001.

In 2001, Liberty Lobby and Willis Carto lost a lawsuit brought by a rival group which had earlier gained control of the Institute for Historical Review, and the ensuing judgment bankrupted the organization. Carto thereafter started a new newspaper, the American Free Press, which was very similar in overall tone to The Spotlight.
