I know you get a lot of email, but please — take two minutes to read this whole note, because it is important.
This week, a landmark climate report shows that we are living through one of the most perilous moments in human history — and corporate media is protecting the politicians perpetrating this disaster. But at the same time, this week’s resignation of Andrew Cuomo shows how independent media is finally moving into a position to fight back and make real change.
We have a choice: We can obediently accept a status quo of corporate media that aids and abets the corruption threatening our survival, or we can pitch in to build a reader-supported media that holds these monsters accountable and gives us a chance for a better world.
If you choose the latter, please click here to use this special discount to become a Daily Poster subscriber to help us continue our work.
As a reader-supported outlet, we simply cannot keep doing this work without you.

This week, The Daily Poster’s reporting was widely credited with playing a pivotal role in Cuomo’s ultimate demise. While corporate media was celebrating Cuomo last year, we launched an investigative series showing how he helped his nursing home industry donors hide a COVID massacre as they made big profits. We were attacked and berated for doing this reporting on such a then-popular politician — but the scandal we helped uncover significantly weakened his grip on power.
It’s the same thing you’ve continued to see from us ever since we launched The Daily Poster a year ago. In the last few weeks alone, we exposed House Democrats raking in money from real estate moguls while letting the eviction moratorium expire, we exposed a top White House official potentially profiting off Biden boosting an oil pipeline, and we exposed Republican efforts to cut off survival benefits to the jobless.
The more of this reporting we do, the more results we will see. But we cannot continue to do so without your help.
We do not have to settle for a future of corporate media and a dystopian hellscape. We are building something better. But we can only do it with your help.
Thanks for considering this request.
Rock the boat,
