Dear Salon reader:

As the country celebrates its independence, Salon is celebrating our own, by joining forces with another great voice of independence, the Guardian. Starting on Wednesday, July 7, look for special Guardian stories each day in Salon.

Many American readers have come to appreciate the rigorous integrity of the Guardian's reporting on the war in Iraq and the Bush administration, as well as its consistently intelligent coverage of arts, entertainment, literature, and modern life.

Every week, we hear from our readers that in a media world of increasing conformity, beacons like the Guardian and Salon are more important than ever.

Let me give you a few examples of recent Salon articles that made a difference:

  • By now the world is familiar with the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse scandal in Iraq. What you might not know is that Salon readers were among the first to know about it. Because long before the news broke in the mainstream media, Salon's "Guantanamo on Steroids" article was shedding light on these abuses.

 

  • Salon's news alert about Rush Limbaugh's domination of American Forces Radio -- to the exclusion of liberal commentators -- has now prompted the Senateto take steps to make sure that our soldiers get to hear fair and balanced programming.
  • And just last week, Salon took the wraps off one of Washington's best kept secrets -- the deeply weird coronation of Rev. Sun Myung Moonin a Senate office building! Our scoop pushed the Washington Post and New York Times to belatedly examine the controversial Moon's mysterious political influence.

Thanks again for supporting Salon with your Premium membership. Your help makes all of this coverage and more possible!

Warm Regards,

David Talbot,
