From Jonah Goldberg, Toby Stock, and Steve Hayes.
Welcome to The Dispatch. A brief word about what we’re doing – and why.
We’re launching a digital media company with three primary products: a website, newsletters and podcasts. We aim to make The Dispatch a place that thoughtful readers can come for conservative, fact-based news and commentary that doesn’t come either through the filter of the mainstream media or the increasingly boosterish media on the right. Importantly, we want to build a genuine community, with regular engagement between those of us who work here and the readers and listeners who will pay our salaries.
Today, we’re sharing a bit more about what we’re trying to build. Tomorrow, we’ll publish the first issue of The Morning Dispatch, a reported newsletter that we’ll eventually send out daily. And over the next few months, we’ll be adding newsletters and podcasts from some of the country’s top reporters and analysts.
All of our work will be free, for now. Early next year, we’ll ask you to join our community as a paying member. At that time, small number of articles and newsletters – and all of our podcasts – will remain free to the general public. But the rest – most of the website and the vast majority of our regular newsletters – will be available to paying members only. If you’d like to learn more about membership, please sign up and we’ll provide details. If you’d like to support our work now, please consider joining as a Founding Lifetime Member.
And if you’d like to understand why we’re launching The Dispatch, please keep reading.
