Quick follow up on last night’s post about Rudy Giuliani and Bill Barr already working to target Trump’s 2020 political opponents with investigations. I’ve mentioned before that John Solomon for a couple decades has been the go-to guy for Republican operatives to peddle their oppo research. This has all been more out in the open of late. And even The Hill, with its minimal editorial standards, felt compelled to reclassify him as an opinion columnist rather than a reporter. But one of my colleagues notes that prior to getting into the Times, this Hunter Biden/Ukraine stuff was pushed most heavily by The Hill and all of those pieces were by Solomon. Keep a close eye on this.
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.
