Guide to Periodicals - My Classification system

Based on my reading of the many periodicals that exist on the market. I have devised a classification system. Below is the key breakdown.

FL = Far Left - Anti-Capitalist, Marxist influenced.
PC = Paleo-Conservative - Old Right, Isolationist
Lib = Liberal - Lean toward Democrat Party in US, Labour in UK.
C = Conservative - Lean Toward Republicans in US, Conservatives in UK.
LR = Regular Left - Socialist - Lean Toward Green Party in US or Democratic Left. Labour Left in UK.
LT = Libertarian

This is how I would classify the magazines.
