Atlantic Consumer Media Launches News Portal
Atlantic Consumer Media, a 150-year-old company with more than 3 million readers, this week debuted The Atlantic Wire. The Atlantic Wire goes beyond aggregating headlines to track and contextualize what Atlantic editors deem the most important opinion journalism and contentious debates. It also follows hundreds of opinion-makers and commentators to provide easy access to the day's best arguments and analysis.
Featured in the site's offerings is the Atlantic 50—a ranking of the most influential opinion-makers and a one-stop portal for their latest insights. With names like Paul Krugman, Rush Limbaugh, and George Will topping the list, the rankings include bloggers, columnists from theWashington Post, New York Times and Wall Street Journal, as well as commentators from Fox News and MSNBC.
"The Atlantic Wire helps readers engage with the most important political, business and social commentary," said Bob Cohn, editorial director, TheAtlantic.com and The Atlantic Wire. "As readers face an overload of information and a deficit of free time, they can now visit one site to easily follow the topics they care about and the opinion-makers who fascinate them.”
