Our journalism usually sits behind a paywall, but we believe this is the time to make more of our content freely available to as many readers as possible. For more free coverage, sign up to COVID-19 Watch.

Subscribe now to be emailed some of the most interesting material that is not given away for free on Crikey. 82 people signed up in January and we now have more than 800 subscribers who enjoy the sealed sections so jump on board.

And Crikey’s subscribers were last week sent a list of almost 100 journalist couples that we have compiled over the past couple of weeks. We aren’t compiling it to make conflict of interest claims, but simply wish to explore if our industry is more incestuous than others and to demonstrate the various marital links across the industry.

Subscribe now for $30 before the price rises to $55 on February 15 and receive about three sealed sections a week from Crikey. Better still, come to our anniversary function at the Imperial Hotel opposite the Victorian Parliament from 5.30pm on February 14 and subscribe then.

This crisis will cut hard and deep but one day it will be over.

What will be left? What do you want to be left?

I know what I want to see: I want to see a thriving, independent and robust Australian-owned news media. I want to see governments, authorities and those with power held to account. I want to see the media held to account too.

Demand for what we do is running high. Thank you. You can help us even more by encouraging others to subscribe — or by subscribing yourself if you haven’t already done so.

If you like what we do, please subscribe.
