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.
