Let’s keep MRAK going


Dear Reader,

Must Read Alaska comes to you every day, determined to give Alaskans a conservative home for news, events, and context. In fact, MRAK has hardly missed a day of publishing during 2019, and this website has had over 7.6 million views and nearly 28,000 comments on stories.

Because you support this alternative-to-mainstream-media project, now in its third year, we keep publishing the truth here and in the newsletter that hits 11,800 email inboxes in Alaska three times a week from Ketchikan to Kotz.

Must Read Alaska has changed the media landscape in Alaska. It comes to you at no cost because you deserve to have a source of news independent of the liberal-bias mainstream media narrative. With your support, MRAK will remain strong and independent, the way Alaska ought to be.

Please consider making a year-end financial contribution to MRAK. (No, this is not technically a “nonprofit,” organization and thus, there is no tax deduction. But your gift makes sure Alaska will have an alternative source of news as we head into one of the most dynamic political seasons of our generation.)

Alaska’s marketplace of ideas needs a strong conservative voice. That’s what makes Must Read Alaska so vital to our state’s future, as our public policy is being primarily informed — and bullied into submission — by the very loud voice of the Left.

Yes, the Left calls names, bullies, threatens, and tries to intimidate Must Read Alaska. But they can’t, and it drives them crazy that MRAK has survived, grown readers so quickly, and won’t back down.

Thank you in advance for your help in the fight.

And also … Have a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukah, a safe New Year, and a joyous season in all that you celebrate.

Best wishes,
Suzanne Downing
Editor and Publisher

  1. You are staight forward ! Easy reading and to the point ! Thank you for what you do! I support your journalism. I will donate for the cause. Might be a day or three but I will. Thank you very much!

  2. Yes…..Suzanne is a great journalist and gives conservatives a voice that they do not have in Alaska’s mainstream print nedia. Thank you, Suzanne, for all you do. You will get your check on January 2nd. And please keep this posting to remind us readers……

  3. You block and delete the comments of those who disagree with you. That is not journalism. Pathetic, Suzanne Downing.

    • She’s not published some of mine either. Meanwhile, it’s her rag and I’m a guest commentator.
      This year I’ve donated more to MRAK than what a sub to ADN would have cost. I used to comment as my2cents in ADN, until they got all anal about subscriptions. They choked up on me because Ubuntu is my OS, which looks like it has an ad blocker, if you’re not tuned for LINUX. I see the ads here though.
      I post here as josephdj, and in KTUU as Joseph Darwin James. I have opinions, which I try to support with facts and data. I appreciate the opportunities to voice them.

    • Jessica…….she just did, you goofy Democrat. Lol. If conservatives try getting in guest editorials with ADN, FDN, or the Empire, they get laughed at. Suzanne supports conservatives and she even prints snide and nasty comments like yours……on Christmas, no less. Don’t let Suzanne’s generous spirit ruin your Christmas or 2020. ?
