Do you get the feeling the news is accelerating?
We’re speeding toward the final act of a historic, unprecedented presidential election, one that has been scrambled at the eleventh hour by the death of an iconic Supreme Court justice and Republicans’ vow to replace her at once. We’re approaching what we hope to be the final act, too, of our crippling coronavirus pandemic—a vaccine on the horizon, but a season of dealing with COVID and flu simultaneously to navigate first. Whatever America looks like a year from now, it’ll be much different from today, and a big part of that will be the result of what happens over the next few short weeks.
All of which is to say: If you’ve ever considered leaving your freelister days behind you and becoming a full member of our Dispatch community, this might be the savviest possible moment to take the plunge.
We think so, anyway, which is why we’re trying to make the decision a little easier for you. If you sign up to join our team this week, your first month of access to our whole cornucopia of editorial products is on us. A fuller version of The Morning Dispatch, including more of our original reporting and analysis than you’d get on the free list every single day. More G-File and French Press. More of The Sweep and our other topical newsletters, Capitolism and Vital Interests. Or whatever bespoke combination of the lot lets you get through your week feeling knowledgeable and on top of things.
