WATCH NOW: The Judicial Puppet Master Behind The Roe Disaster

About The Lever

The Lever, formerly known as The Daily Poster, is a reader-supported investigative news outlet that holds accountable the people and corporations manipulating the levers of power. The organization was founded in 2020 by award-winning journalist David Sirota, an Oscar-nominated writer who served as the presidential campaign speechwriter for Bernie Sanders.

The Lever’s reporting, podcasts, videos, and live events focus on politics, business and corruption — and how money shapes and distorts economic and environmental policy.

We believe a functioning democracy requires a vibrant independent media and aggressive reporting, rather than corporate media promoting propaganda.

We believe fearless subscriber-supported journalism can create leverage that forces politicians and corporations to fulfill their promises.

To paraphrase Archimedes: We believe that with a strong enough lever, we can help move the world.
