The 153 year old US publication, the Atlantic, this week introduced a new standalone site composed of aggregated material: the Atlantic Wire.
“Our team – editors, reporters, researchers, data-crunchers -systematically tracks hundreds of opinion-makers from newspapers, web sites, television, radio, and magazines.”
The post lays out the four parts of the Wire site:
- Breaking Opinions: op-eds, blog entries, and other commentary.
- Features: Various categories including ‘Spatwatch’, ‘Strange Bedfellows’, ‘Cliché Watch’, and ‘Who Won the Day’.
- The Ticker: Twitter style updates, in 140 characters or less.
- The Atlantic 50: A list of the most influential columnists and commentators, as decided by the Wire.
