Please join us in thanking the people that understand democracy fails without independent news reporting. And, even better, contact us to add your name to this list of supporters - funders, members, donors and subscribers - past and present!
We are independently owned and operated by professional journalists and funded by grants, gifts and memberships from nonprofits, individuals, corporations and foundations. We solicit support for subject areas in which we have an interest. We recognize the possibility that those who fund any medium may seek to influence its content. Therefore, we have instituted policies to ensure that our practices and content conform to common journalistic standards. As with any other objective news medium, there is a "wall" between the news and fundraising functions. Our producers and editors practice attribution, fairness and balance. All supporters are given the explicit understanding that editorial content and control is entirely under the authority of PNS staff. To learn more visit our Best Practices page.
