Very Important

I know from past experience that when we do a drive of any sort there’s a large group of readers who’ve already decided they’re going to join or contribute. But only a fraction get to it, at least at first. It means stopping the progress of your day for a moment, maybe getting out your wallet. It’s easier to do it some time later. Believe me, I’m the worst offender on this front. If that’s you, if you’re thinking about contributing to our drive or have already decided that you probably will, please make it today. Just take a moment right now. Like literally right now. If you’re a member, it’s literally just one click. It will take you 30 seconds. Not exaggerating. Just click right here.

It’s easy. It will immediately boost the mood of everyone working at TPM. And it will provide a critical boost for our organization. Here’s more on what the drive is about and why it’s so important.

Thank you.

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.
