David G. Bradley is a multimillionaire and owner of the Atlantic Media Company, a publisher of several news magazines including The Atlantic Monthly.[1] Bradley has described himself as a "necon guy"[2] and argued in favor of the Vietnam War during his youth[1]. He also supported the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 because he was "dead certain about the rightness," but now concedes that he was wrong.[2]

Recognizing that his personality was not fit for his youth-time political ambitions, Bradley founded several "research consulting firms" (one of which was a for-profit think-tank)[3] with the aim of becoming wealthy prior to becoming a publisher of political magazines.[1] He is now known for his aggressive staff-recruiting tactics and the high salaries he provides them with.[2]
