For those of you who don't know, I've edited TAPPED for the last nine months (so yes, you can blame me for any typos). It's been a remarkable time -- from the primaries to the general election to the transition, we've always made every effort to offer a unique progressive and opinionated perspective on political news -- and I think we've succeeded.

What sets us apart is that we have always considered TAPPED a core element of coverage, whatever the issue. TAPPED is not an afterthought -- we consider it central to the magazine's identity. But doing so is expensive -- our writers and editors all need to eat. TAPPED has remained a vital progressive voice and unique presence in the blogosphere. What's more, we'd like to do more, from podcasts, to video content, to more reporting on the blog. But we can't do it without your financial support.
