Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Another lonely item in the practically deserted broadcasters corridor on Tuesday morning: a rack filled with copies of speeches by everyone who yakked on day one of the DNC -- and I do mean everyone. All of them are marked "EMBARGOED FOR RELEASE ON DELIVERY," and since delivery has already taken place, the media is apparently free to do whatever it wishes with them -- so why not trade them, like bubblegum cards for policy wonks? I'll swap you two Alexis Hermans for an Eliseo Roques-Arroyo and an Amanda Kubik... -- Michael Roberts

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
