Like most websites, theblaze.com featured advertisements and pop-ups.
Notice the past tense there – featured. Our new and improved website, however, features zero advertising.
“That’s kind of a big risk,” Stu Burguiere tells Blaze Media editor in chief Matthew Peterson.
“The main problem that all companies face on the right in media is that they are being demonetized systematically by Big Tech,” Peterson explains, “and we know that this is going to increase as we move into November 2024.”
Stu remembers how “Facebook, as we went into the 2020 election … clamped down on everything,” especially political commentary, thereby silencing the voices who dared to speak against the left’s narrative.
That’s why Blaze Media is “ripping that Band-Aid off” before Big Tech can repeat last election’s censorship by relying on our audience for support instead of advertisements.
“We're not going to depend on … your ad money coming from these, you know, woke networks that are demonetizing us anyway,” Peterson says.
Instead, “we're gonna go right to all of you watching us and say, ‘Hey, support us for the price of a cup of coffee a month,’ and we'll get them off our back, and we'll do more of the content that people love” – content like documentaries, investigative reporting, family entertainment, and columns in lifestyle, sports, and tech.
This decision to go ad-free is “not just about getting outside of censorship,” however; “it's also about serving our audience,” says Peterson.
We are done being silenced and punished for trying to get the truth to our audience, but we need your support to see this endeavor through.
