Hi fabulous Reader folks!
In these times where one can either turn on Democrat news media or Republican news media and nothing in between, we, the ever growing post-partisan population (43 percent last time I looked) who are no longer in this “us vs. them” paradigm, have no place to get balanced news. Unless we research like mad on the internet, but most don’t have time for that.
So to be able to pick up the Reader every week and get oh-so-rare real journalism from all perspectives is wonderful.
Christian Rose’s excellent article from Feb. 9th “A Tale of Two Cities in the Age of Trump” was what finally prompted me to write a letter. Did everyone read it? Go read it now! We are a full spectrum of humans in this country and with an honest source of news we can see that we can all prosper and thrive together. Thank you!
While we have you ...
... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.
