Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

For the second time this year, a story premiering on this humble little blog, Riptide, has served as fodder for jokes on The Colbert Report. First, Stephen Colbert took on homophobic, rent-boy-lovin' George Rekers, and last night, the host roasted New Times columnist and 2 Live Crew founder Luther Campbell's controversial take on Park51, or as Colbert dubbed it, "the Al-Qaeda Victory Center and Bin Laden Funplex."

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, 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 Miami with no paywalls.
