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.

IT'S TIME TO TALK ABOUT MEDIA BIAS

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.
