BOSTON, MA - JANUARY 21:  Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), speaks during a rally for airport workers affected by the government shutdown at Boston Logan International Airport on January 21, 2019 in Boston, Massachusetts.  As the partial government shutdown enters its fifth week, the stalemate between President Donald Trump and congressional Democrats continues as they cannot come to a bipartisan solution on border security.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has turned down the offer to participate in a town hall on Fox News, saying she’d take a “hard pass” of the “hate-for-profit racket.”

So far, her fellow 2020 candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) have attended Fox News town halls, while South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) are scheduled to in the future.

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.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
