Yet another classic from Richard Turley and the Businessweek design gang. On his Tumblr, Turley said the inspiration came from an issue of The Stranger, published in 1966. Here is the cover article, by Joshua Green.

While you soak in the greatness above, we’re going shopping for some Obama tube socks.

The American Prospect Will Fold Unless it Comes up With $500,000

The American Prospect, the liberal magazine that publishes 10 times a year, is in dire straits. The Huffington Post reports that, unless the title comes up with about $500,000, the July/August issue, which closes in May, will be its last.

Kit Rachlis, the American Prospect’s Editor-in-Chief, is currently pulling out all the stops to make sure that doesn’t happen. She told HuffPo that staffers are “making an all-points effort to fill that gap with individual donors, institutional donors, as well as readers and subscribers.”

If you think the American Prospect hasn’t made much of an impact, thus it won’t be missed, here are just a few journalists who got their start there: Ezra KleinSuzy Khimm, Joshua GreenNick Confessore, Garance Franke-Ruta, Jonathan Chait and Ann Friedman.

Bloomberg Businessweek Names Senior National Correspondent

Bloomberg Businessweek has named Joshua Green – a former Senior Editor at The Atlantic, as well as a political writer for The Boston Globe – as a Senior National Correspondent. Green will be covering politics for Businessweek.

Josh Tyrangiel, the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, said Green’s experience in politics is an asset to Businessweek.

“Josh is a great reporter and writer. He knows how to break news and he writes about complicated issues and personalities in memorable prose. He’s a great addition to our political team and we are thrilled to have him join us.”

 

Hillary Clinton Gives The Atlantic Its Best Traffic Ever

img_1953175799.jpgHey, here’s one way to generate online traffic. Get all the people who worked on a historic presidential campaign to cough up their most damning emails and then publish the whole shebang two weeks before the convention.

Via Politico comes word that Joshua Green‘s article at The Atlantic that details the inner workings of the Hillary Clinton campaign has clocked 1.3 million page views, giving it an all-time high and nearly tripling what the site receives on a daily basis.

Colbert’s Presidential Bid: Springtime For Journos

Ever since Stephen Colbert announced he’s running for president (in South Carolina), there has been fanfare, there has been balloons and there have been stories. Lots of them.

Colbert’s kinda-fake-kinda-not bid for the White House will do nothing to change the political landscape of the primary season — but it has already done wonders for the reporters covering those primaries.

Larry King got a chuckle out of it. Tim Russert didn’t know what to make of him. Leslie Gornstein talked to the FCC about it. Now Joshua Green, of the Atlantic, writes about Colbert’s chances, comes up with a campaign strategy for Colbert to make it to one of the 2008 conventions and offers to be his campaign manager.

It’s as though reporters facing the exhausting campaign season have all suddenly fallen in love. Everyone is giddy. Everyone is newly energized.

Including us. True, we’re not a political site, but we’d like to do Green one better: Need some official campaign bloggers, Mr. Colbert?
