For weeks, The Daily Poster has been focusing on where the real corrupting money in politics is — it’s not in relatively small corporate PAC donations, it is in dark money and super PAC donations from corporate executives. We’ve specifically reported on ways public pension official controlling trillions of dollars can expose and shut down this money — and now, there’s very big news today that some of them are starting to take action.
This is the kind of reporting we do — we follow the money and hold politicians accountable. But we are grassroots-funded and cannot do this kind of work without your help.
To keep doing this work, we need free subscribers to click here to become supporting subscribers.
I want you to take a look at this link to see how our reporting brings pressure on both parties — you’ll see the successes we’ve had. But here’s an admission: This work is risky.
Last week, we broke some news about Democrats kowtowing to the health insurance industry, and we lost some subscribers who were mad that we dared to report something negative about Democrats. We’ve also recently broken a big story on a GOP slush fund of corporate cash, and that made others mad at us.
We are not going to back down, but it shows you how tough it is to do accountability journalism in this environment. It’s the kind of reporting that not only elicits a backlash from some people, it also takes a lot of time and resources.
The only way we can do it is if folks click here to pitch in.
The cool thing is that when you pitch in, you aren’t just helping us continue doing this work — you get access to all of our live events where you can ask high-profile guests questions, and you get our subscriber-only content, like the Midday Poster, You Love To See It and The Weekend Reader. And we’re going to be launching more soon.
We are building a new model for journalism — but again, we really cannot do it without your help. So please — click here and join our team as a supporting subscriber. Together, we can continue making a bigger and bigger impact.
Thanks for considering this request.
