Can You Be Sure to Read This Post?

We need your help with something. This week we’re conducting an important reader survey. If you can take a few minutes to fill it out it will help us a lot in being able to do our job of bringing you the news in the most effective way possible. Just click here to take the survey.

I’ve mentioned in different contexts over recent months that we are reviewing and rethinking and trying to improve how we do our core work. This doesn’t mean departing from the core things about TPM and its mission. But a vital news organization must always be open to change and indeed changing just how it accomplishes its core goals, how it lives its values because the world around us is always changing – the news world, the world of politics, the economics of news, the world of journalism. So this survey is about asking some core questions so we know what brings you to TPM, what you value most, what you’d like to see more or less of. It’s pretty quick. I just took it myself. We’d be in your debt if you’d take just a few moments and fill it out by clicking right here.

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.
