Become a Salon Core member now for the lowest price ever
Over the past few weeks, you may have noticed a steady flow of appeals promoting Salon Core, our membership program. Most of these efforts have focused on the necessity of readers’ support to “keep independent journalism alive.” As Salon’s founder David Talbot explained, “A free press is not free. We have always paid the hardworking people who report and write and edit and photograph and film and design and code for our site.”
Our editor in chief Kerry Lauerman highlighted some of Glenn Greenwald’s latest scoops to illustrate the kinds of stories that your funding supports. In her brilliant smack-down of Rush Limbaugh, Joan Walsh wrote about Salon’s role as a defender of women’s rights and powerfully explained the need to “support those who support you.” We’ve been running a series of ads touting the virtues of our crusading brand of fearless journalism.
We know that there are many worthy media organizations out there, so we’ve stepped up our game to give Salon Core members something extra. We’ve increased the frequency and diversity of our webcasts, to give readers more intimate access and a space to converse with Salon writers. Mary Elizabeth Williams just hosted a truly poignant webcast on her successful battle with cancer, and coming up next we have a webcast with our Occupy Wall Street correspondent Natasha Lennard and another evening of “Since You Asked Live” with Cary Tennis.
This week’s offer, however, is something totally new: We’re slashing the cost of joining Salon Core by $15 to make supporting Salon more affordable than ever.
Now, for $29.95 (just 8 cents per day!), you can partake in the webcasts, join our in-person events, support independent journalism and receive a slew of optional bonus benefits including subscriptions to Rolling Stone, the Atlantic and Mad magazine, as well as various discounts.
Over the coming weeks, we’ll be making some exciting announcements regarding video and audio content for Core members; join now to be the first to experience this. The price has never been this low; become a member of the Salon Core community today.
