Wash­ing­ton, D.C. (Novem­ber 4, 2013) — Polit­ic­al colum­nist, journ­al­ist, and au­thor Peter Bein­art will join At­lantic Me­dia as a con­trib­ut­ing ed­it­or, re­port­ing for both Na­tion­al Journ­al and The At­lantic. Tim Grieve, ed­it­or-in-chief of Na­tion­al Journ­al, and James Ben­net, ed­it­or-in-chief of The At­lantic, jointly an­nounced the ad­di­tion of Bein­art to their ed­it­or­i­al teams, start­ing in Janu­ary 2014. In his new role, Bein­art will con­trib­ute reg­u­larly to Na­tion­al Journ­al‘s magazine and to TheAt­lantic.com. He will also par­ti­cip­ate in At­lanticLIVE and Na­tion­al Journ­al LIVE events throughout the year.

“Peter is one of the most en­tre­pren­eur­i­al journ­al­ists work­ing today,” said Grieve. “In his es­says and his books, he has helped shift the na­tion­al con­ver­sa­tion about Amer­ic­an polit­ics and for­eign policy. His soph­ist­ic­ated ana­lyses, his ver­sat­il­ity, and his in­tel­lec­tu­al hon­esty sync per­fectly with Na­tion­al Journ­al’s mis­sion.”

“We are de­lighted Peter’s go­ing to be adding his dis­tinct­ive voice and ideas to the on­go­ing dis­cuss­ing of na­tion­al and for­eign policy at The At­lantic,” ad­ded Ben­net.

Bein­art joins the At­lantic Me­dia brands from The Daily Beast, where he was a seni­or polit­ic­al writer and ed­it­or of the Open Zion blog. He also serves as an as­so­ci­ate pro­fess­or of Journ­al­ism and Polit­ic­al Sci­ence at the City Uni­versity of New York and is a seni­or fel­low at the New Amer­ica Found­a­tion. He is the au­thor of three books: The Good Fight, The Icarus Syn­drome, and The Crisis of Zion­ism.

Bein­art has writ­ten for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journ­al, The Fin­an­cial Times, The Bo­ston Globe, The At­lantic, New­s­week, Slate, Read­er’s Di­gest, and Die Zeit, among oth­er pub­lic­a­tions. In 1995, he was named man­aging ed­it­or of The New Re­pub­lic. He be­came seni­or ed­it­or in 1997 and, from 1999 to 2006, served as the magazine’s ed­it­or. Bein­art has ap­peared on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephan­o­poulos,” PBS’ “The Charlie Rose Show,” NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Com­edy Cent­ral’s “The Col­bert Re­port,” among oth­er broad­cast news pro­grams.

About The At­lantic: Since its found­ing in 1857 as a magazine about “the Amer­ic­an Idea” that would be of “no party or clique,” The At­lantic has been at the fore­front of brave think­ing in journ­al­ism. One of the first magazines to launch on the Web in the early 1990s, The At­lantic has con­tin­ued to help shape the na­tion­al de­bate across print, di­git­al, and event plat­forms. With the ad­di­tion of its news- and opin­ion-track­ing site, TheAt­lanticWire.com, and TheAt­lantic­Cit­ies.com on glob­al cit­ies, The At­lantic is a mul­ti­me­dia for­um on the most-crit­ic­al is­sues of our times — from polit­ics, busi­ness, urb­an af­fairs, and the eco­nomy, to tech­no­logy, arts, and cul­ture. The At­lantic is the flag­ship prop­erty of Wash­ing­ton, D.C.—based pub­lish­er At­lantic Me­dia Com­pany.

About Na­tion­al Journ­al: Na­tion­al Journ­al is Wash­ing­ton’s premi­er source for 360-de­gree in­sight on polit­ics and policy. With up-to-the-minute break­ing news and ana­lys­is at Na­tion­al­Journ­al.com, the es­sen­tial in­tel­li­gence of Na­tion­al Journ­al Daily, the know­ledge and depth of Na­tion­al Journ­al magazine, and the com­pre­hens­ive cam­paign cov­er­age of Na­tion­al Journ­al Hot­line, Na­tion­al Journ­al de­liv­ers everything you need to know to stay ahead of the curve in Wash­ing­ton.

"Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer who wrote the explosive dossier alleging ties between Donald Trump and Russia," says in a new book by The Guardian's Luke Harding that "Trump's land and hotel deals with Russians needed to be examined. ... Steele did not go into further detail, Harding said, but seemed to be referring to a 2008 home sale to the Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev. Richard Dearlove, who headed the UK foreign-intelligence unit MI6 between 1999 and 2004, said in April that Trump borrowed money from Russia for his business during the 2008 financial crisis."
