I'd like to apologize in advance for not writing to all of your personally. If you are receiving this email that means you have supported my work over the years, unconditionally, and I have been and will be forever grateful. Many of you have taken the time to send me notes of praise. You should know that I've kept those notes and every now and then I read it for inspiration.

It has been a lifelong dream of mine to edit my own investigative news magazine. I hope you will join me in celebrating the launch of The Public Record, a nonprofit, online political magazine that promises In-Depth, Incisive, Independent Reporting.

TPR features hard-hitting original reports and biting commentary covering a wide-range of domestic and international issues. We have cultivated the best, the brightest, and the bravest journalistic minds and provided them with a media outlet to showcase their work.

We believe the independent and mainstream media have become saturated with individuals who opine and pontificate instead of report. Sadly, that means many important topics are not being covered. That is a void we intend to fill.

The Public Record is modeled after two newsletters published and reported by two muckraking journalists we have long admired: I.F. Stone, who published I.F. Stone's Weekly, and George Seldes, who published In Fact. We decided to call this publication The Public Record as a way of paying homage to Mr. Stone, who, to paraphrase the man, famously remarked that there is a wealth of important information in the public record if one simply took the time to search for it.

That's exactly what we have done. More than 90 percent of the investigative reports published on our website was based on primary source material found in "the public record". We guarantee you have not read these stories anywhere else. That's the type of journalism you can come to expect on a regular basis from The Public Record no matter what political party has a majority in Congress or the Senate, and regardless if the President of the United States is a Democrat or Republican.

Please bookmark us, send us your story ideas, and comments.
