What is Public Notice?
Public Notice is the online home for Aaron Rupar’s coverage of politics and media, featuring his reporting and pieces from a wonderful cast of contributors.
Over three years at Vox, Aaron established himself as one of the foremost chroniclers of Trumpism, explaining what’s happening on the American right for a largely progressive audience. He immersed myself in right-wing media and watched Trump rallies so you didn’t have to. And he still does that here, with some help from friends.
Public Notice is fair, but not impartial. We think democracy and fair elections are good things and, unlike a lot of mainstream coverage, am not shy about saying so — or about holding major outlets accountable when they equivocate.
We cover the full gamut of American politics, with a focus on the Republican Party’s turn against democracy and the media ecosystem that enables it. Public Notice situates day-to-day developments within that macro context.
