Why Pay for News?


Why Pay for News?

Newsrooms across America have cut back in recent years. Reporting the news is costly. We won’t last as a business by giving away that work. Here are the benefits of paying for our work to deliver vital new for Salem:

Every subscriber gets our newsletter and breaking news alerts so you never miss the latest. You can see all of our stories anytime of day by going to our website.

Your government watchdog

Our reporting holds powerful officials accountable for how they use their power – and your money. No one keeps a closer eye on the seats of power – or digs harder to find the truth.
