Now that it’s 2016, The Atlantic is ramping up its politics and election coverage. The magazine is tripling its reporting team, adding more content to its Politics and Policy vertical and launching an interactive election news hub titled 2016 Distilled.
The Atlantic is also renewing The Edge, a daily political newsletter formerly produced by National Journal staffers.
“This extraordinary presidential campaign is a great story in itself, but it also reflects deep and enduring uncertainty and disagreement about the correct direction of domestic and foreign policy,” said James Bennet, president and editor in chief of The Atlantic, in a statement. “That’s why we’re making this investment now: We believe The Atlantic has a clear role to play in identifying and sharpening the most important ideas and drawing more people into the debate.”
