The Weekly Standard is a conservative opinion weekly magazine that debuted in September 1995. The obvious nickname of The Meekly Standard was applied to the magazine by at least 2002. Conservative radio talk show host and author Michael Savage has used The Meekly Standard in his political lexicon since at least 2003.
Another nickname of The Weekly Standard is The Weakly Standard.
Wikipedia: The Weekly Standard
The Weekly Standard is an American neoconservative opinion magazine published 48 times per year. Its founding publisher, News Corporation, debuted the title September 18, 1995. Currently edited by founder William Kristol and Fred Barnes, the Standard has been described as a “redoubt of neoconservatism” and as “the neo-con bible”. Since it was founded in 1995, the Weekly Standard has never been profitable, and has remained in business through subsidies from conservative benefactors such as former owner Rupert Murdoch. Many of the magazine’s articles are written by members of conservative think tanks located in Washington, D.C.: the American Enterprise Institute, the Ethics and Public Policy Center, the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, and the Hudson Institute. Some individuals who have written for the magazine include Elliott Abrams, Peter Berkowitz, John R. Bolton, Ellen Bork, Christopher Hitchens, Roger Kimball, Harvey Mansfield, Joe Queenan, David Brooks and John Yoo. The magazine’s website blog, titled the “Daily Standard”, is edited by Daniel Halper and produces daily articles and commentary.

The real target of right-wing talk radio hosts isn’t the liberal left, but each other. After years of domination by Rush Limbaugh, someone like Michael Savage had to come along and ratchet up the intensity. He has called Limbaugh ‘liberal’ on immigration issues and refers to the conservative magazine The Weekly Standard as ‘the meekly Standard.’ Now many of these hosts try to match him.

UPDATE 6/11: Sorry, Politico. That Von Brunn apparently targeted the offices of The Meekly Standard and wasn’t fond of Bill O’Reilly isn’t proof that he wasn’t right wing.
