Thanks for taking the risk, and taking the leap. We need more Tara Henleys.

Keep up the great work, Tara! Long live independent media.

As a conservative/libertarian I don't always agree with you, Bari Weiss, Glenn Greenwald, Taibbi or any of the writers I subscribe to here on Substack. However, I have no doubt that every piece I read is born from a true journalistic perspective that isn't filled with lies intended to support a biased predetermined conclusion.

It's nice to have access to journalism as it should be.

I am all in with you Tara. With you, Bari and others, I think we are seeing the beginning of the end of the mainstream propaganda media as we know it as people turn it off, shut it down and get their information from the free alternatives. The only worry I have is that sites like Substack.com will be acquired and slowly corrupted into the same beast of misinformation.

Congrats on your emancipation! The best stories live here on Substack, not in the MSM. https://yuribezmenov.substack.com/p/how-to-live-the-dream?s=w

Thanks for taking the chance on Substack. I would love to read an expose' on The Truth Project conspiracy and how it is systematically marginalizing independent thought.

Thank you for your comment about "Leaving the confines of the mainstream media..." It does exist, and is dangerous in so many ways. Also, please leave everything unlocked. I subscribe because I strongly support what you and Bari are doing. I don't need special access to content. In fact, the more this wonderful open conversation is spread freely, the more likely it is to help make desperately needed changes in our culture. Keep up the outstanding work.

One of the declines of journalism we all witness, seems to have accompanied the internet. In Canada we saw Conrad Black take over papers and sack the 'riff raff' he must have seen the employees as. The payment model for reporting held less weight than in earlier days. I think that Matt Taibbi explained this well when interviewed on the topic, he's worth discussing media in general with. Although it is very hard in our woke era to actually tell the Truth to those that don't want to hear it, he will stick his neck out some times when it is sorely needed. Taibbi explains that part of bad journalism is an audience that wants bad journalism, which speaks to our school system and society in general.

Thank you Andrew Lawton for your Trucker Convoy coverage, two thumbs up!

Thank you so much for taking this leap, Tara! Your forum here has been a godsend to me - a place where I can express my views and feelings freely and confidently and feel a sense of connection to a community of free thinkers as well.

Thank-you so much, Tara.

There is a spiritual need for free, independent media. We are singers and just today were joyfully making plans to attend church on Easter Sunday at a parish with some of the very best choral music in Canada. At last - churches are open! We can sing! All together! Live!

We took a look at their calendar of events, and were deeply shocked to see that we must "register" by Good Friday in order to be granted admittance to this house of God on Easter Sunday. Show our papers in other words. No vax (triple preferred to double), no need to apply. It took my breath away.

Evidently, this is a branch of the Church of the Cult of Woke, formerly Fairlawn Heights United. I guess they worship the old "science." It's attended by some CBC folks, as well as Kathleen Wynne, former Liberal premier of Ontario. I know because my family and I used to be welcome there.

Be still, my soul. All things considered - given, and taken away - I do prefer the wilderness to the Woke. Strongly.

Nice echo chamber you've got here Tara. Very prescient career move, jumping on the anti-woke train just as it leaves the station. With your background, I'm sure you're highly qualified to earn a living telling people what they ought to be thinking. Meanwhile authentic journalists like Patrick Lancaster are risking their lives to bring us the truth that really matters. When you start taking real risks, like Lara Logan, perhaps I'll consider paying for the privilege of being told what I already know. Meanwhile, enjoy the ride. It's a comfortable train, even though it's getting a bit crowded at this point. Oh, and give my regards to Matt and Glen at your next soiree.

Thank you, Tara. I just subscribed, well, became a paid subscriber. This particular post gave me the perfect way to explain Substack to people who have never heard of it! :D

Hi Tara , your topics are the best, this may sound funny to some, but I’m seriously wondering about fellow humans working in the main stream media ,recklessly reporting falls information concerning the events with our liberal government and the WEF that’s about to unfold under our blinded eyes and it will create Havoc even for those that actually write falls news about this global situation, there will be no exemptions for no one except the global elite. God forbid Fake and distorted news reporting may hold it’ Share of responsibility in playing a key role into this near future. On the bright side no one can predict the future. Thank you Tara
