Not Exactly What We Had In Mind

How TPM Reader JO finds his joy:

One small reason that I appreciate my TPM Prime AF account is because I convinced my wife that Prime AF stands for “Prime as f-ck.” She asked me the difference between Prime and Prime AF, and I said the AF content is a lot edgier, includes profanity, very raw and unfiltered, etc. Now she periodically asks me to read the “news with swears website”, and I spice up the copy a bit as I read to her. She’s a big fan! (Feel free to adopt this business model, no charge.) I admit that I find joy in strange places.

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.
