One of the hardest parts about running a conservative news site is keeping the lights on. We have to fight for every page view, every penny’s worth of ad dollars, because it’s a competitive industry. That’s not a complaint. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
But things are different now. We’re in the middle of an unambiguous coup attempt. The massive level of voter fraud is so apparent, it takes a full-blown head-in-the-sand leftist to not acknowledge how bad things are. Unfortunately, there are many in conservative media who are doing the same thing. It’s not that they’ve stuck their heads in the sand. It’s that they don’t want to risk losing what they’ve built. I get it. I also disapprove.
In the latest episode of NOQ Report, we called out those in “conservative” media who have chosen to stand on the sidelines during this fight. It seems that most are doing it because they are beholden to corporate or Big Tech interests. For example, dependency on Facebook means avoiding topics that are anathema such as voter fraud. For others such as Fox News, it seems like they are beholden to other forces, perhaps the Chinese Communist Party, and therefore avoid the topic or even counter the narrative in order to stay in their puppetmasters’ good graces.
We’ve said it before and it needs to be said again. We would do better and make more money if Joe Biden wins. Outrage sells a lot better than hope. Four years of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris would make this site grow and expand our dwindling coffers. But this is America. There are more important things to fight for than the almighty dollar. We have to consider the damage done to our nation with a Biden presidency. More importantly, we have to consider the outright attack on our nation from forces domestic and abroad. We will fight them even if it does not financially behoove us.
We are calling on those in conservative media who have chosen to sit on the sidelines or even pretend like there’s no coup to stand down. If you’re not going to fight for this nation, what benefit are you after the fact?
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
