The NewStandard, one of the only
reader-funded, collectively run, hard news sites on the web, will close its
doors in three weeks if it does not secure the necessary funding from readers
to continue publishing.

Maybe you're already a reader of The NewStandard. Maybe you've never heard
of it before. Either way, this message is for you, because everyone stands to
lose when an alternative to the corporate media is forced to shut down. And
we're hoping you will help to save it.
