We’ve been making a lot of waves with our accountability journalism — we’re proving that it works. And if we get just a few more free subscribers to become supporting subscribers, we will have the resources to bring on more reporters and expand. We’re thisclose to getting to our goal.

Can you please go to and become a supporting subscriber?

There’s an important new Pew study out today finding that the “vast majority of Americans (80%) think that the news they get is at least ‘somewhat’ influenced by financial and corporate interests.”

We are building a new model for journalism — we don’t take corporate money, we are funded by grassroots subscribers. That empowers us to publish stories challenging Wall Street and scrutinizing politicians, whether they like it or not.

I don’t like spending time asking folks to pitch in — but it is important. Please click here to become a supporting subscriber.

When you pitch in, it helps us get one step closer to our goal of hiring more journalists to produce stories that make real impact.

Thanks for considering this,
