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:

Marc Ambinder Joins The Atlantic’s Defense One

Marc Ambinder is joining The Atlantic’s national security site — Defense One — as a senior contributor. Ambinder will retain his roles as editor-at-large of The Week and contributing editor to GQ and The Atlantic.

“Few people have such a clear understanding — and the sources to back it up — of U.S. intel, secrecy, and national security issues,” said Kevin Baron, executive editor of Defense One, in a statement. “The last decade saw U.S. intelligence and the military joined at the hip in secrecy, with consequences echoing from the battlefield to the Constitution for years to come. Expect Marc to shed light on what comes next.”

Defense One is expected to launch sometime this summer.

Atlantic Media Launches ‘Defense One,’ Covering Defense, National Security

Atlantic Media is expanding its brand with Defense One, a site that will cover United States defense and national security news. This doesn’t exactly get us excited, although we’d be interested in checking out a “The 27 Coolest Top Gun Call Signs” piece.

However, if you consider yourself among the “influentials in the national security community,” maybe Defense One is the site for you. Here’s how Justin Smith, president of Atlantic Media, sells the site:

Defense One will bring to this important market the disruptive combination of intelligent, indispensable journalism and leading edge digital expertise that is the hallmark of all of Atlantic Media’s properties. We see Defense One as a major growth venture and a core Atlantic Media brand.

Alright! Anyway, Defense One will launch late this summer if you’re curious.
