Our Subscription Tiers

Discourse Blog is a 100% worker-owned website covering politics and culture from a left-wing perspective. We believe journalism should be antagonistic towards power on behalf of the vulnerable, journalists should hate what they cover, and the world belongs to workers

From the beginning we’ve operated with zero funding from investors—it’s just us and our readers. And you don’t need us to tell you that it’s never been a more dire time to be a progressive media outlet; all you need to do is turn on cable news or log onto Facebook to get a sense of that yourself. 

Your subscription goes towards allowing us to do uncompromising, adversarial reporting and commentary on multiple platforms, to keep the site running smoothly, and (eventually) helping us to expand both the size and scope of what we’re able to do here. In other words, what you give is the foundation of the present and future of Discourse Blog.
