Gimme Just Two Minutes Of Your Time

We have a couple tentpole events each year which are critical for the business side of our operation. One of those is when we offer all our members two weeks of TPM AF (Ad Free) at no extra cost. That’s what we’re doing this month. It’s basically a no-risk free trial and we do it because we’re so confident that once you’ve tried it you won’t want to go back. It’s just that much better.

It’s also a way to support TPM. We fund TPM with a mix of membership revenues and advertising. Every time a member opts out of advertising our financing gets a bit more stable and we spend a bit less time scrambling for ad dollars. We spend that time producing a better site. It makes a big difference.

No hard sell to upgrade. But I really do want to ask you to do the trial. There’s no obligation. It’s easy to opt out if it’s not for you. If nothing else, just enjoy two weeks ad free on us and then opt out. The trial is super easy to turn on and turn off. Can you give it a try? Just click here. Like I said, we’re confident that if you give it a try you simply won’t want to go back.

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.
