We'd like our readers to start paying for Daily Maverick

More specifically, we'd like those who can afford to pay to start paying. What it comes down to is whether or not you value Daily Maverick. Think of us in terms of your daily cappuccino from your favourite coffee shop. It costs around R35. That’s R1,050 per month on frothy milk. Don’t get us wrong, we’re almost exclusively fuelled by coffee. BUT maybe R200 of that R1,050 could go to the journalism that’s fighting for the country?

We don’t dictate how much we’d like our readers to contribute. After all, how much you value our work is subjective (and frankly, every amount helps). At R200, you get it back in Uber Eats and ride vouchers every month, but that’s just a suggestion. A little less than a week’s worth of cappuccinos.

We can't survive on hope and our own determination. Our country is going to be considerably worse off if we don’t have a strong, sustainable news media. If you’re rejigging your budgets, and it comes to choosing between frothy milk and Daily Maverick, we hope you might reconsider that cappuccino.

We need your help. And we’re not ashamed to ask for it.

In latest dust-up, Berlusconi gets broken nose/teeth, not black eye this time

Just as Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi was signing autographs at the end of a rally in his support, an assailant threw a minature statuette of Milan's famous Duomo, or cathedral, at the 73-year old leader, striking him in the face and giving him a broken nose and bloodied mouth that required stitches.  This physical attack comes on top of Berlusconi's sex scandals, divorce case and corruption trials - all being very publicly played out in the media. According to the doctors, Berlusconi had a small fracture of the nose, two broken teeth and soft tissue injuries around the mouth. Berlusconi spent the night in hospital as a precaution. The attacker, Massimo Tartaglia, has no criminal record but has suffered mental problems in the past. For more, read the AP
