Friends: Today is Festivus — the day when we air grievances. But instead of doing that, I just wanted to express an end-of-the-year thank you for being part of The Daily Poster team as a supporting subscriber. I started this project in early 2020 with a simple idea: I didn’t want to launch just another single-writer blog screaming into the void. I wanted to try to build a grassroots-funded news outlet featuring multiple reporters producing journalism that holds power accountable and makes a real impact. I didn’t know if we could build something sustainable, but I figured it was worth trying because I genuinely believe that we desperately need independent, reader-supported accountability journalism now more than ever.
