Dear Flyover Reader,

In yesterday’s edition, we ran a story about National Public Radio losing America’s trust.

A senior editor at NPR wrote an essay describing the roots-deep bias in the organization, and his first-hand accounts of language committees, prescribed activism, and willful editorial blindness painted a bleak picture of a once-venerated American institution.

It’s not surprising.

NPR’s decline is in lockstep with the larger trend in American media. Like the “Newspeak” in George Orwell’s 1984, the language used by many news organizations is meant to “diminish the range of thought.” In other words, they have an agenda for your opinions: to make them match their own.

This, my friends, is exactly why we started The Flyover.

Americans don’t need a morning memo telling them what to think. They just need the facts.

We try our best to deliver exactly that.

There’s another key difference between The Flyover and NPR; we don’t get tax dollars. This plane runs on pure capitalism.

If you value The Flyover’s service of delivering news without the Newspeak, would you help cover our costs? Our sponsors help pay the bills, but we also depend on the direct support of our readers.

I’d be personally grateful if you’d consider a donation.
