Salon.com is one of the most important sites on the Internet. Luckily, it’s also one of the most enjoyable, too.
Nowhere else, online or offline, have I found such engaging, insightful, and timely commentary and news. With columnists ranging from liberal to conservative to libertarian to simply unclassifiable, Salon.com distinguishes itself by offering information and editorials that go so much beyond the typical frustrating soundbites dished out by mainstream sites and broadcasters.
A couple of years ago, Salon.com tightened its belt by charging a fee to have access to its “Premium” articles. At the time, despite my tight budget, I quickly ponied up $50 for a two-year subscription, and it’s been money very well spent. Salon.com is honestly one of my “must see every day” sites.
I have regularly urged friends to subscribe as well, but understandably many were reluctant to do so, given that their finances were as bleak or even bleaker than mine.
Therefore, I’m particularly pleased with Salon.com’s recent decision to make their Premium articles available to both subscribers AND to folks willing to page through a multi-page ‘sponsor ad.’
I can now link to Salon.com’s Premium articles here, confident that all can view them. And in the meantime, I hope you’ll check out Salon.com regularly and bookmark their site.
