Atlantic Media Launches ‘Defense One’

Defense One, Atlantic Media’s new site catering to those involved (or just interested) in the national security and defense world, went live this morning. If that’s your idea of fun, then you’ll likely find something worthwhile.

Content on Defense One is broken into five categories: global threats, politics, management, technology and ideas. There are no paywalls, so everyone is free to browse as much as they want.

Kevin Baron, executive editor of the new site, writes in a letter that Defense One, “Will be a news and conversation destination for the national security leaders, influential professionals, stakeholders and citizens who are navigating that change.” In other words, don’t expect any think pieces proclaiming that Iceman was more pivotal to Maverick’s success than Mav overcoming the shadow of his father’s career and properly processing his father’s death. But do us a favor, if you do come across that, email us.

Here’s the rest of Defense One’s editorial team:

Stephanie Gaskell (associate editor/senior reporter); Kedar Pavgi (digital producer/reporter); and contributors Marc Ambinder, James Kitfield and Joshua Foust.
