The Year That The News Lost Its Mind
Welcome to our membership drive, Back The Beast! This week we’re saluting our hard-hitting, scoop-breaking newsroom.

2020 was the year that the news lost its mind. When it began, we were gearing up for a busy election season. Then coronavirus came. Then George Floyd was killed. We’ve made it to August, and masks and protests are everywhere.
The Daily Beast has always pushed to deliver accurate, honest, no B.S. reporting. This year has been a sobering reminder of why the news matters, and we’ve never worked harder to deliver it to you. Times are different, but our dedication to our readers hasn’t changed a bit.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be releasing a series of stories called ‘The Backstory.’ These articles give a peek into what goes into landing some of our biggest scoops, and how our crack team of reporters get the job done.
It’s in our DNA to expose the truth, hold the powerful to account, and tell the stories that matter. The unwavering work of our journalists will always be the top priority at The Beast, and it’s made possible through memberships. That’s why today, along with releasing The Backstory series, we’re kicking off Back The Beast.
Back The Beast is a celebration of our resolute reporters, and a promise to keep the hard-hitting, power-to-the-people stories coming. To support us during Back The Beast, we ask that you consider joining Beast Inside. Memberships fuel everything we do, and becoming a member is the easiest way to show your support for our newsroom.
As always, we appreciate your readership,
