Yeah, there are very few independent reporters left. Support TR and subscribe!
Adam gave me his blessing to say whatever I want in response to this thread and future threads/comments orbiting this topic. Until now, I've been holding back because I "know too much" as they say. I don't have any NDA'd knowledge, that's strictly Adam's business, but there are
things brewing behind the scenes of TR. Rest assured that maintaining the independent nature of TR is the highest priority, but it comes at a great cost.
That said, it is no exaggeration to say that RIGHT NOW is a critical moment for the future of TR. I know that to be true literally and figuratively. I can't make any promises about the future but I do know that there's a higher probability of there being
a future if gerbils pitch in and sub for whatever amount they see fit. Money can't solve everything, but it can solve some things, and it can buy time to solve others.
You're probably not going to see a big post on the front page repeating these words or detailing just how dicey things are for TR and other independent sites out there. This is yours heads-up. This your "wake me when you're serious" moment. It's no joke. Subscribe if you can, spread the word if you feel so inclined. The truth is that one of the few ways that TR sticks around is if the community that values TR's work (which we recognize is in limbo right now) steps up and funds it. You can make a difference if you choose to.
I'd love to go on, but I have to head out. Ask me whatever and I'll give my best answer when I can.
