Finally – a press release that doesn’t put us to sleep.
“Ron Brownstein is smarter than the human species was meant to be,” said David Bradley, owner and chairman of the Atlantic Media Company. “The power of his mind – an extraordinary analytic skill – is simply in a class by itself. The bet here is that pairing Ron Brownstein with Ron Fournier (faster than the human species) will create incomparable journalism for the nation’s capital. What’s better than that?”
No, Brownstein isn’t becoming a martian. This quote comes in an announcement today from Atlantic Media stating that Political Director Ronald Brownstein will take on the added role of Editorial Director of the National Journal Group. He will advise Editor-in-Chief Ron Fournier on long-term editorial strategy.
Fournier admits his jealousy of Brownstein’s mind. “For years, I’ve jealously admired Ron’s ability to analyze issues and write them in ways that reset the way Washington looks at politics and policy,” said Editor-in-Chief Fournier.
Brownstein will continue to write his weekly column on politics and policy for National Journal magazine and contribute articles to National Journal, the Atlantic and other Atlantic media publications.
