In an age of fake news, blurred lines between fact and opinion, and vicious partisanship in major media outlets, it’s comforting to know that Fort Bend Star readers can depend on simple, honest hometown journalism to keep them informed about local events that affect their lives.
Nobody does that better in eastern Fort Bend County than the Fort Bend Star. This newspaper is a weekly source of trustworthy, fair, and nonpartisan news reported by people who live here.
For four decades we have given our readers the best possible coverage of our communities. Now we’re asking you, our readers, to partner with us in this venture. Although we will continue to be a free circulation newspaper, we would like your help covering the cost of keeping quality journalism in your community.
“We are asking our readers to voluntarily donate to the Fort Bend Star to help us keep providing them with the best news and community coverage that they have come to expect from us,” said Publisher Frank Vasquez.
Donations of any size can be made on our website, www.fortbendstar.com, by clicking on the “Voluntary Pay” button. You can learn more in Editor Joe Southern’s column on page 3 or in our ad on page 4.
Your donation to help support local journalism will help us continue to deliver important local news to your friends and neighbors in our corner of the county. You can count on us; can we count on you?
