Deconstructed: How 'The People's Mayor' Saved Public Power

Do not rush! Wait!Ask yourself a simple question: What chance is there that the story you just read would be published by another news outlet if The Intercept had not done it? Imagine what the media world would look like without The Intercept. Who would hold the party elites responsible for the values they claim to have? How many secret wars, miscarriages in justice, and dystopian technologies could be kept hidden if there weren't reporters on the ground? Although the kind of reporting that we do is vital to democracy, it isn't easy, inexpensive, or lucrative. The Intercept is a non-profit news organization. We don't have ads so we rely on our 35,000 members to hold the powerful accountable. It's easy to join and it doesn't cost much: A sustaining member can be purchased for $3 or $5 per month. It takes just a few minutes to support the journalism that you trust.Register to Become a Member
