Good journalism is important, and good journalism about Russia has never been more important than now! But there are plenty of powerful people who are trying to shut down that journalism. But you can help me continue my mission, and you can gain exclusive access to a wealth of knowledge about current events in the process.

My name is James Miller, the Managing Editor of The Interpreter where I report on Russia, Ukraine, and Syria. I am also the author and editor behind the “Under The Black Flag” column at RFE/RL which provides news, opinion, and analysis about the impact of the Islamic State extremist group in Syria, Iraq, and beyond. I am a contributor at The Daily Beast, Foreign Policy, The Atlantic Council, and other publications. I'm also an expert on verifying citizen journalism, and have been covering developments in the Middle East, specifically Syria and Iran, since 2009. 

My magazine, The Interpreter, and my column on the Islamic State were both funded by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, which had its budget cut by Congress. As a result, I need funding to continue my work.

As such I am announcing an exciting new initiative. With the help of Patreon, I will be supplying new content directly to paying readers. They will get access to news before it is published, and may have a chance to watch exclusive video explainers and question & answer sessions, deep dives into some of the world's most complicated stories.

$1 a month will help me continue my work. You'll get exclusive content, and you'll get some content before it becomes public.

At the $3 and $5 levels, you will get access to bonus materials where I take questions from readers and try to explain the news stories that they want to hear. Ever want your own personal journalist who explains the news to you? You got it!

At $25 a month, you'll get breaking news briefings where I alert you about the latest headlines. Each message will be personalized and will be delivered as quickly as I can get it out. 

Thank you!
