Announcing special access to The Free Press for our growing community.
The Free Press, coffee and quiet time to read, is a great way to start the day. Thanks for all you do!
These are all great ideas. I’d love to get to know other like-minded individuals that are tired of the mainstream media. It’s great to have platforms like Substack where we can write what we want without censure. Bari is leading the charge in fighting back against the monopoly of the legacy press and I’m all for it.
I am an open minded moderate conservative and I am truly grateful for your courage and talent. By standing up to group think and leaving your comfort zone to starting your own platform you are setting a true example of an American hero. God bless you and all of you that she’d Light on the real truth.
Wow wow wow wow, I can be abusive to an Intern named Daniel? This subscription is awesome!
Daniel!!! Where my F***ing Latte!!!
I said no foam!!! *Throws Latte in Daniels face*
WONDERFUL News, Bari and Friends! These are extraordinary times in which we live - and more than ever before, we need a FREE Press. Thank you for being a light for Truth in a world of Darkness. Stand Courageous, and We Will Be Free💖
I am hopeful some of us who live near one another might get the chance to meet in person . Thx Bari
Can’t wait. As an early subscriber I am so grateful to be part of this and see it grow. You are really maki g a difference BW.
ps - any chance the Zooms will be recorded and available for replay for any that might not have been able to join live?
Bari - are you charging your grandmother?? <grin>
Hello Bari! I am a registered Republican, but love your articles and fell in love with common sense when during Covid there was no common sense lol. I recently became a paid subscriber because I believe so much in what you’re doing! Are usually just rely on emails coming to me for content to the Free Press. Is there someplace else I should be looking to find other articles that I may be missing with my paid subscription? Thank you in advance for any help you can provide. Kelly Mitchell.
Thanks Bari for the great work, it is so refreshing to read about fascinating topics with creative, open and intelligent people. The comments section is always thought provoking and stimulating. Thanks, again.
Hey Bari. As I was finishing your article today I saw this:
“that we never rely solely on advertisers or investors or an algorithm. “
I guess it surprised me a bit, probably because of the words “solely” and “advertisers”.
I went back to your launch article and found nothing like this, and the word “advertisers” grits on me enough that I thought I’d ask... Do you think in the long run the subscription model will not work effectively enough to grow and you will need to allow advertising? I sure hope not but would like to hear your thoughts on this “mission statement” kind of stuff. IMO advertising cripples independence, and at least I was hoping the free press was going to try to not do this at all costs.
Regardless, love The Free Press and wish it all the luck in the world to prosper and crush msm (without of course becoming one of “them” along the way.)
Happy to have been subscribing from the start of Common Sense, and excited to see it growing into The Free Press.
I’m also looking forward to more of your writing, Bari -- have been reading you since your NY Times days, and gained infinite respect when you left there the way that you did.
Thanks for contributing to a desperately-needed revival of journalism in this country.
This may seem small, but I am surprisingly happy that the name "Common Sense" wasn't abandoned, but instead, reserved for your own voice. Looking forward to all that's coming.
Your columns are great, and your gift subscription promotion was very effective. I was able to extend your reach to appreciative friends.
I noticed you used the word "field" twice! Nice going! :-)
