Issues & Insights

Thanks A Million!!!

When we launched Issues & Insights a little over a year ago, our goal was simply to keep doing what we loved — using our decades of journalism experience to write hard-hitting, fact-based, informative commentaries on the top news of the day.

At Investor’s Business Daily — where we all were previously employed — the quality of our work attracted a sizable audience. But we had no idea if we could bring those readers over to a new site without having any institutional backing or any money whatsoever to promote it, and with each of us contributing to the site in our free time.

Since then, we have been delighted by the response we’ve received from readers who knew us at IBD, and those who’ve discovered us here at Issues & Insights.

Within three months we had attracted 1 million page views. We’ve seen steady growth in our audience since then. We now have more than 3,500 subscribers to our email alerts. We’ve published more than 6,000 comments — each of which we have reviewed and approved prior to publication.

This month marks another great milestone. We just topped 1 million page views in a single month.

 We want to extend our thanks to our readers, and especially to those who have so generously supported our efforts with your hard-earned money.

With your help, we will continue to do the hard work of reporting the facts before offering our opinions.


The I&I Editorial Board

We Could Use Your Help

Issues & Insights was founded by seasoned journalists from the IBD Editorials page. Our mission is to use our decades of experience to provide timely, fact-based reporting and deeply informed analysis on the news of the day.

We’re doing this on a voluntary basis because we think our approach to commentary is sorely lacking both in today’s mainstream media and on the internet. You can help us keep our mission going.
