Who The Fuck Supports This?

You do. WTF Just Happened Today is a once-a-day, single-subject newsletter and blog, with a distinct tone and clear formatting tracking the daily shock and awe in national politics.

It’s produced every morning by hand, updated throughout the day, with a newsletter sent out every afternoon. More than 80k people rely on WTFJHT to bring them the day’s news in as a concise and focused recap.

Don’t believe the hype? Here’s what the smartest people on the Internet are saying about What The Fuck Just Happened Today?

So here’s the deal: This is my full-time job. And, running this thing is expensive (see the next section). It’s just me, plus a few volunteers donating a couple hours/month. WTFJHT has been one of the most exciting, fun, and rewarding projects I’ve ever been involved in and I want nothing more than for this to keep going.

How Much Does It Cost To Run This? Glad you asked! I did some back of the envelope math and I came up with $7,636/month. That’s a pretty conservative estimate, tbh. If you’re interested in how I arrived at that number, I’ve outlined the cost of running WTFJHT in the FAQ.
