Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Hey, lookie, I got an e-mail from Dallas Morning News City Hall reporter Dave Levinthal! Alas, nothing too sexy -- just a note that "today, The Dallas Morning News launched a blog focused on Dallas City Hall and area political issues." And it's blessed with the catchiest of monikers: Dallas City Hall Blog. But perhaps it's all them Young Street blogs that account for The Dallas Morning News' increase in online hits; says Editor & Publisher it's up 96 percent since the same period last year. Only ... hey, hey, what's that name right above The News? The one with the "impressive" 139 percent jump in unique audience traffic from March '07 to March '08? Say, that's our parent company! --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
