Atlanta Magazine

Atlanta Magazine Atlanta magazine is the city’s premier general interest publication, reaching a monthly audience of more than 400,000 readers. Since 1961, Atlanta magazine has served as the authority on the metro Atlanta area.

Atlanta magazine is the city's premier general interest publication. Since 1961, Atlanta magazine has served as the authority on Atlanta, providing its readers with a mix of long-form nonfiction, lively lifestyle coverage, in-depth service journalism, and literary essays, columns, and profiles. The city's only general-interest magazine, Atlanta is recognized regionally and nationally for journalism and design excellence, with more than 300 regional and national awards. The magazine was founded in 1961 by the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, but from its inception it was much more than a promotion piece for its namesake city. Founding editor Jim Townsend, described by Time as "the father of city magazines," set the standard from day one with cutting-edge design, powerful graphics, and investigative and creative articles by some of the emerging talents of the 1960s. The magazine's pages carried work by Anne Rivers Siddons, Bill Diehl, and others who would go on to be hugely successful novelists, under the art direction of Bob Daniels, who later left to serve as art director of Esquire. Over the decades, the legacy of excellence has continued, with noted magazine writers such as Tom Junod, Luke Dittrich, Justin Heckert, and Paige Williams on staff, and contributors ranging from novelists such as Pat Conroy and Terry Kay to noted nonfiction authors such as Melissa Fay Greene and Steve Oney. The Atlanta Chamber of Commerce sold the magazine in the 1970s. After a series of ownership changes during which the content and design continued to evolve, Emmis Publishing bought the magazine in 1993. Emmis also owns Texas Monthly, Indianapolis Monthly, Cincinnati magazine, Orange Coast, and Los Angeles magazine. Emmis Publishing is a division of Emmis Communications (NASDQ: EMMS), an Indianapolis-based diversified media firm.

Irwin Street Market has been hugely influential as the starting ground for many local companies that have become household names—King of Pops, Bell Street Burritos, and O4W Pizza, just to name a few—and has held on to its scrappiness as the neighborhoods around it shift and evolve:

When the pandemic began, Jake Rothschild was ambivalent about what might happen with the market that relies so heavily on foot traffic. But Glide Pizza opened a takeout window in July, followed by two new tenants, D.B.A Sandwich Company and Bottega Benne, and the market was rejuvenated.

yeahhhhh, here's the deal with Lead Stories and Dana Ford. I took the liberty of letting them know!: Dana Ford, Newsdesk Editor — CNN World now writing & editing for (so-called) 'independent fact-checking' agency Lead Stories." (for Facebook of course!) And writing for Atlanta Magazine apparently, for whomever reads that rag!? She "now works for a fact-checking outfit called Lead Stories. The service uses software to track the virality of content on the web. Then, PAID in part by social media giants such as Facebook & TikTok to 'help clean up their worlds,' it deputizes journalists like Ford to be sort of like the contact tracers of the misinformation pandemic." (no CONFLICT OF INTEREST there or anything, right?!) Funders: Facebook Corporation (again, no CONFLICT OF INTEREST there or anything, right?!) "Facebook is quietly pressuring its independent fact-checkers to change their rulings. As Facebook struggles with waves of misinformation, the company’s political & business concerns are influencing its fact-checking policies." "Facebook is making what are essentially policy decisions for a huge amount of public debate with little oversight or accountability. We should know if fact-checkers can be overruled, & the extent to which opinion content is exempt from fact-checking.” "Facebook now says it pays over 70 independent third-party groups, with nine in the U.S., to review a never-ending stream of potential misinformation." Yeah, 'third-party fact-checkers' like these!!!: Lead Stories follows the completely laughable "principals" of the Poyntner Institute. Nelson Poynter was championed as "A liberal in a conservative community…." The Poynter Institute has ties to George Soros." MISINFORMATION NATION: Fact-Checking Political Speech "Companies like Facebook work with groups licensed by individuals at the International Fact-Checking Network." (Poyntner Institute) "So is it really a mystery that a money spending extension of the democratic party (Soros) is funding studies that happen to favor their whipping boys while running down the opposition? Nothing more than another of many bought and paid for media pieces the democratic party is trying to float as real news. The thinking is if you control the perception, you control the reality." THERE is a fact-check on your so-called "independent fact-checker" N**i! Nice try sweetheart!!! Get sued by Michael D. Black much? HA! Dan Bongino doesn't think much of you either!
