Atlantic Media, the proud publisher of The Atlantic, has launched a new publication: Defense One, a publication whose stated purpose is "To suck the dick of Northrop Grumman." Oh, wait.

I mean, "to cover the people and forces shaping a new era for defense through the post-war transformation and into a 21st century global security landscape [and arm] national security professionals, stakeholders and citizens with what they need to know." It's just that drone-and-bomber-making defense contractor Northrop Grumman is the primary advertiser of this defense contracting trade publication which could turn into a major moneymaker for Atlantic Media if we can get another war or three going abroad, fingers crossed. That was the confusing part.

Congrats on the launch.
