New at New Atlanticist

After a three month experiment and some discussions with regular readers, we’ve decided to suspend operations on the Atlantic Council’s breaking news blog, Atlantic Update, and to consolidate it into New Atlanticist.  The result, I hope, will be one, livelier blog that becomes a hub of discussion about transatlantic issues.

While I’d still prefer that commenters register and post under their own name, I quickly dropped those as absolute requirements, quietly shifting to a policy of post hoc moderation.

Here’s what’s been happening since we made the switch:

  • Big 3 Bailout: View From Europe – I take a look at how the European papers are responding to the government’s attempt to save Detroit. The results may surprise you; they did me.
  • Quote of the Day – A rocker whose music is used to torture terrorists is happy to do his part.
  • Britain’s Shameful Iraq Withdrawal? Neil Richard Leslie, my former assistant editor who’s now heading back to Scotland, reacts to a Guardian column impugning his country’s military.
  • Fixing NATO – I react to an Economist editorial on “How the alliance should move forward.”

And that’s just since yesterday!

    I’m sure we could make a go of it for less than half what GM wants. Mostly, though, it was just too much work to keep up a “breaking news blog” with a paid staff of one.
