From the Desk of
Michael Patrick Leahy
Editor in Chief of The Tennessee Star
And The Star News Network
CEO Star News Digital Media

I founded Star News Digital Media to provide readers with something that has virtually disappeared from the American media landscape: trustworthy news about state politics written from a constitutional conservative perspective by local journalists.

We launched our first digital news site, The Tennessee Star, in 2017. Over the next six-plus years we have added more than a dozen state-based digital news sites.

It’s not been easy, and it’s not been a fair fight. The anti-free speech, anti-competitive coalition of Left-wing-funded media, Big Tech like Google, Facebook, YouTube, NewsGuard, the digital ad networks, together with their Big Government allies in the administrative state are doing everything they can to censor us, demonetize us, and throttle our ability to connect with you.

Your gift helps us level the playing field.

Help us continue in our mission of reporting the truth by donating in any amount today!
