As the election approaches, I’ve got some news: we’re aiming to bring on more reporters and roll out some new subscriber-only content. But to make this happen and launch this expansion plan, we need as many free subscribers as possible to become supporting subscribers. So here’s my ask:

Can you go to and become a supporting subscriber?

If you’re reading this, you know we’ve been breaking open big stories every single week.

Just this morning we exposed how a powerful health care lobby group is trying to get congressional Democrats and Republicans to pass a corporate immunity law. In the last few weeks, our reporting forced the Biden campaign to stop using GOP talking points about the deficit, successfully pressured state lawmakers to limit corporate immunity provisions and helped progressive Democrats in Congress hold Trump’s postal service appointees accountable.

The only way we can do this kind of reporting is through grassroots funding. Our work is entirely supported by subscribers pitching in $5 a month or $50 a year. Please consider clicking here to subscribe.

As a subscriber, you’ll get our weekly must-read feature, our new flashback feature looking back at history, access to all the archives, and access to our upcoming interactive features.

We are so close to being able to expand. So please, please, please: click here to become a supporting subscriber.

I hate asking people for money, especially during tough times. But this is really important — we need hard-hitting accountability journalism now more than ever.

Rock the boat,
