They didn’t tell you the real story

I’ll be blunt: We need your help, and I wouldn’t ask if it wasn’t important.

We are building an independent, non-corporate media outlet and we’re trying to hire more journalists and fund more open records requests — but the only way we can do it is if you click here right now to score a big discount and support independent media.

Why should you fund The Daily Poster? Because we tell you the real story that corporate media tries to suppress. Take a look at two recent examples.

A few weeks ago, corporate media ran interference for the nation’s largest health insurer, UnitedHealthcare. Corporate news outlets insisted the company would postpone a policy of denying emergency room claims.

But The Daily Poster broke open the real story, showing that the company had already been denying payments for ER visits. We were able to break this story because we had spent months combing through complaint files detailing how the insurer had been mistreating its customers.

Exposing these lies takes a lot of time, effort, and funds. It’s why we need 50 of you to click this discount link right now and support independent media.

Then, yesterday, The New York Times announced that U.S. Rep. James Clyburn, a Democratic kingmaker, had come out against progressive icon Nina Turner in a special election over a Cleveland-based congressional seat. The report provided almost no context for Clyburn’s move.

Within hours, we broke the real story: Clyburn, after scoring more than $1 million from Big Pharma, had been publicly vilifying Medicare for All during the pandemic and had set his sights on Turner right after she launched an ad talking about how her family’s struggle to pay medical bills led her to support Medicare for All. We also documented how Big Pharma lobbyists were also mobilizing against Turner.

Dropping everything and breaking open the stories corporate media misses isn’t easy. It takes a team of hard-working reporters and editors, all of which costs money. And we can’t keep doing this unless you click this discount link and support independent media right now.

Please take advantage of this discount. These stories never would have been exposed if many of your colleagues hadn’t become Daily Poster paying subscribers. Now, to keep telling the real stories the corporate media is missing, we need you to become a paying subscriber.

Rock the boat,

Sirota
