To friends and supporters of

It is with great regret that I must announce that will suspend its operations on August 31, 2016. Our funder and employer, First Look Media, has chosen to part ways with us, so we will no longer receive financial support from the company.

Our future beyond August 31 is unknown. The team would love to find a new home for, but we recognize the challenges that await us. Over the coming days and weeks, we’re going to explore our options, including re-establishing at another news outlet or creating our own independent entity. Either solution would require the necessary funding for our work to continue; otherwise the team will have no choice but to go our separate ways.

Thank you for all of your support over the last 20 months. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

editor and founder
