theDailyLead is a grassroots media outlet that attracts more than 2,000 people weekly. The goal is to grow to get a message to communities and have voices/opinions heard. However, without your help, theDailyLead cannot support itself and even grow. Advertising revenues are quickly decreasing, meaning it is becoming harder and harder for media outlets, both small and large, to sustain a steady expansion among readers.
Many news sources, such as the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal, immediately put up a firewall in order to continue reading. theDailyLead wants its independent, investigative journalism to stay as open as possible. Having three writers is a tight measure to have when having such a number of audience members. That is why we ask for your fiscal support. Any contributing amount is welcome.
Thank you for your continuing support.
Jorge Velasco, founder and CEO.
