And thank you so much for your emails answering my questions below. If you haven’t had a chance to read our drive launch post I’d truly be in your debt if you’d take a moment to read it. It’s just below this post or you can read it by clicking here.

(To all the members who wrote such thoughtful replies to the questions below: seriously, thank you. I’m going to be reading through all of them personally. It will take me a while as I’m trying to work several stories too. But I will be making my way through them all. Some will be published and all will figure into our planning and internal discussions. Seriously, thanks.)

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.
