National Journal is an American weekly magazine that reports on the current political environment and emerging political and policy trends. National Journal was first published in 1969. Times Mirror owned the magazine from 1986 to 1997, when it was purchased by David G. Bradley. It is now, along with The Hotline, part of National Journal Group, a division of Atlantic Media Company.

The magazine was established in 1969 by Thomas N. Schroth, who formed the publication after being fired from his post as editor of Congressional Quarterly, with many CQ staff defecting to the new publication.[3]

National Journal is aimed at Washington insiders.[4] It is mostly read by members of Congress, Capitol Hill staffers, the White House, Executive Branch agencies, the media, think tanks, corporations, associations, and lobbyists.[citation needed]

The magazine has received three National Magazine Awards.[5]

Some of its best known current and former contributors have been:

As of 2006, National Journal has an agreement with Washington Week which ensures that at least one National Journal reporter is on the show.[13]

In 2010, buyouts were offered to the entire magazine's staff. The magazine was relaunched in October, along with a new, free website.[14]
