The Atlantic (until 2007 formally The Atlantic Monthly) is an American magazine and multi-platform publisher. It features articles in the fields of politics, foreign affairs, business and the economy, culture and the arts, technology, and science.[1]


In 1980, the magazine was bought by Bilderberger and chairman of the Israel lobby group Presidents Conference, Mortimer Zuckerman, a property magnate and founder of Boston Properties, who became its chairman. On September 27, 1999, Zuckerman transferred ownership of the magazine to David G. Bradley, owner of the National Journal Group, which focused on news of Washington, D.C., and government. Bradley had promised that the magazine would stay in Boston for the foreseeable future, as it did for the next five-and-a-half years.

On July 28, 2017, The Atlantic announced that billionaire investor and "philanthropist" Laurene Powell Jobs (the widow of former Apple Inc. chairman and CEO Steve Jobs) had bought majority ownership through her Emerson Collective organization, with a staff member, Peter Lattman, being immediately named as vice chairman of The Atlantic. David G. Bradley and Atlantic Media retained a minority share position in this sale.[2]

Jeffrey Goldberg, previously a prominent writer for the magazine and describes as ""Netanyahu's faithful stenographer"[3], was named editor-in-chief in October 2016.[4]
