They Support Us: We Appreciate It

Every day our writers, editors and yes, you the reader, strive to engage in interesting, thought-provoking, sometimes raucous conversation under The Atlantic's original "Of No Party or Clique" banner (that phrase is from the very first issue's mission statement in 1857).  The kind of intellectually honest, often counter-to-conventional-wisdom ideas we raise and debate can make some advertisers squeamish because more predictable environs are safer.  But the companies that support what we do with their ad dollars are not in that camp.  

The truth is, there are an increasing number of places for them to spend their money and the fact that they choose The Atlantic as one of those places means they value what we all participate in here.  So I appreciate their investment in us and I hope you do too.

Here are the companies that have supported us so far this year:
