Since we launched in 2013, 48 Hills has been a vital voice on a local scene dominated by bland corporate media, sensationalizing online outlets, and national chains. We’re the only daily independent progressive news source in the Bay Area, and remain committed to our ideals of deeply reported news and arts coverage, a diversity of voices, unique takes on cultural events, and a dedication to our readers to counter “fake news.”
But we can’t do it without you! We rely on your donations to keep 48 Hills going. Please support us today and keep alternative, independent media alive — especially in this time of national corporate takeover and the rise of the most heinous elements of the American psyche on the cultural and political stage. Below are some of our most popular stories of 2016, showcasing our hard-hitting reporting, in-depth analysis, and first-on-the-scene cultural coverage. Your tax-deductible donation will secure more essential reporting like this in 2017. Thank you for your support!
