Dear Salon Premium member:
Three years ago I came to you during a time of crisis for Salon and the Web as a whole. The Internet bubble had just burst and the online advertising industry was in free-fall. As an independent publication without access to a big corporate parent's largesse, we looked to you, our readers, to keep Salon's unique voice booming.
You didn't let us down. In fact, we've been overwhelmed by your loyalty and support.
While naysayers and self-proclaimed experts claimed that no general-interest online magazine could charge for content, and gleefully predicted Salon's imminent demise, you proved them wrong. Because you stepped up and joined Salon Premium, Salon is alive and thriving today -- and continuing to provide a fearless journalistic voice at this crucial time in our nation's history.
From all of us at Salon, our sincere thanks.
Editor and founder
