A request Im humbly asking you to consider

We have never been more in need of clear-eyed journalism that confronts the unchecked corporate, political, and military power at the root of the overlapping crises we face.




I know The Intercept has been sending you a lot of emails lately, but I’m hoping you’ll take a few minutes to read why I think this week’s deadline is so important.

As if the Trump years weren’t enough of a wake-up call, the world now risks being engulfed in a war begun by a nuclear-armed petrostate. The forces of imperial aggression, right-wing pseudo-populism, rampant misinformation, and climate breakdown continue to advance.

There is a relationship between our poisoned information ecology and our poisoned physical ecologies — and fearless reporting is a key part of the solution.

This is no time for The Intercept to scale back. We have never been more in need of... clear-eyed journalism that confronts the unchecked corporate, political, and military power at the root of the overlapping crises we face.

Yet instead of making plans to expand their coverage to meet this moment, right now my colleagues are scrambling to cut expenses. That’s because since the 2020 election, The Intercept has gradually lost more than 4,000 of the monthly donors who sustain our work.

To replace that loss, we’re racing to achieve an ambitious goal: 16,000 monthly donors by April 30. That’s tomorrow at midnight.

I know that Intercept readers like you remain committed to this unique nonprofit newsroom. But we have less than 48 hours left before our April 30 deadline — and we still need 300 new monthly donors to reach our goal.
