Local news needs your support

Keeping South Carolina Informed.

As we navigate the world-wide pandemic, we at The Post and Courier strive to keep the people of South Carolina informed on how COVID-19 is impacting lives here at home. Providing you with the best and most up to date information is our mission every day. We know it is our responsibility to help you navigate this unprecedented time in history.

But that doesn’t mean this time is not without its challenges for The Post and Courier. As local economies are brought to a near standstill, we are not immune. Local news organizations across the country, including ours, must fight for survival while continuing to provide important local news and information as a public service during this difficult situation. As a family-owned local business ourselves, we empathize with what our neighbors are going through and are doing what we can to support them while also fulfilling our mission to provide honest reporting, but we cannot do it without your help.

If you believe local news and information is critical, especially during times of crisis, please support us in providing this public service by donating to this new COVID-19 Local News Fund to help keep us on the job creating stories such as:

Contributions to this fund will help pay for news resources to cover the impact of the virus on our local communities and businesses. It will ensure we have the resources and staff needed to bring you the latest COVID-19 news, provide information on testing sites, highlight the work our medical institutions have been called to do and more. And as always, The Post and Courier will also continue to fulfill its role as a vigilant watchdog for all of our readers’ interests – a role more important now than ever.

All donations to this fund are tax deductible. Thank you for your support of The Post and Courier during this critical time.

Thanks to the Post & Courier for continuing the floor of information about COVID in our state - the most powerful weapon we have against contagion - South Carolinians must show themselves capable of acting on accurate information.

Curious that I'm hustled to get a colonoscopy, yet I couldn't get a COVID test even though I had most of the symptoms. It's all about money. Meanwhile, I had tried assembling a conference to deal with race relations, but it appears as though the black community via SC State University, panned the notion given that the black community feels that it's controlling the message already and isn't interested in an open forum with those seeking to understand their plight. My letters to the editor have been dustbinned, and as a career journalist, I feel as though I've been perfectly marginalized. I appreciate the P&C's coverage, but my paper appears to have rejected me. It's a shame. I'm a subscriber and a fierce defender of the 4th estate. And based upon the banner ads and the fee for access to most everything, it would be difficult to fathom that the Evening Post Corp. isn't profiting somehow. Do not forget your staff writers, otherwise, I may as well get newsfeeds elsewhere. And don't ignore the fringes of your coverage area. You're missing critically insightful information and contributing to the disenfranchisement of those who most need access and attention. That's all. I doubt this gets read or appreciated either.
