Pamela Geller - Biography
Pamela Geller is the founder, editor, and publisher of Atlas Shrugs.com, bringing you the news you will not hear from the mainstream media and providing an unblinkingly honest examination of global affairs.
Her videoblogs ("vlogs") on a wide range of events have won acclaim, as have her exclusive Atlas interviews with internationally renowned authorities on jihad, terrorism, and related issues. (Videos of many of these interviews are available on her YouTube channel and AtlasShrugs.com.) She routinely confers with leading scholars on the Middle East, Islam, Eurabia, China, and Russia.
Atlas has broken numerous important stories — notably the questionable sources of some of the financing of the Barack Obama campaign. Her Op-Eds have been published in Newsmax, The Washington Times, The American Thinker, and other publications. She appears regularly on TV and radio news shows.
Atlas began her publishing career at The New York Daily News and subsequently took over operation of The New York Observer as associate publisher. She left The Observer after the birth of her last child, but remained involved in various projects, including American Associates, Ben Gurion University. She also was senior vice president for strategic planning and performance evaluation at The Brandeis School.
After engaging in various forms of activism in the aftermath of 9/11, she became convinced of the need for an alternative to the mainstream media, and began AtlasShrugs.com in February 2005.
The site won the 2005 "Best New Blog" Jewish & Israeli Blog Award, was a finalist in the 2005 Weblog Awards, and finished third for "Best Conservative Blog" in the 2008 Weblog Awards. Atlas also won the "Grande Conservative Blogress Diva" Award for 2008.
