Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: The Beautiful Atlantic

James Bennet and the brilliant gang at The Atlantic are at last giving us a way forward in media. It’s not about killing print, but understanding the print/online mix and how to turn a profit using both. In this Times piece from Tuesday, we see how the magazine found a new direction: by simply changing its way of thinking.


We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.

So we're hoping to raise $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall. Read our argument for journalism that is fair and accurate and stands for something—and join us with a tax-deductible monthly donation (or make a one-time gift) if you agree.
