A Better TPM

You’ve probably noticed we’re making more use of our new live blog feature in recent weeks. That’s along with a number of other changes and fine-tunings we’ve introduced in recent months as we try to evolve and improve TPM – evolve with the news environment, technology and how people most want to consume news. There’s no final state, no best way to do things that doesn’t change. This is our effort to constantly improve how we bring you the news and that’s possible because of your membership. That’s how we finance all of this. And that’s why this month I’m encouraging all Prime members to try the two week free trial we’re offering of Prime Ad Free (AF).

It’s a better version of the site. There’s less clutter because there’s zero ads ever. Ads also ad to site load times. On every front it’s a better experience. If you decide after the trial that you want to upgrade to Prime AF that’s additional revenue that makes it possible to keep doing what we’re doing. Keep improving, remain vital and creative as an organization. They all go together.

Individually, it’s just four bucks a month more for a Prime AF account ($10) compared to a Prime account ($6). But at scale that difference is huge for us as an organization. But like I said, just give it a try, okay? You can test drive it for two weeks with no obligation. If you decide you don’t want to go back, great! A better version of the site for you and more support for our team to keep delivering for you every day. Just click right here to try it out.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
