Why should you subscribe?

Political news is broken. Most reporting today has a slant, lacks context, or fails to answer fundamental questions that readers want to know. Tangle is an independent, ad-free, non-partisan politics newsletter. It’s transparent. It’s direct. It’s smart. And it’s all about the readers. Four days a week, you’ll get an email breaking down the day’s biggest news and answering questions from readers across the country. It will never take more than 10 minutes to read. I make sure you know the left’s argument, the right’s argument, and my take. The newsletters are always full of interesting, important facts you’ll want to know, and every issue ends with a feel-good story to send you off for the day.

@Ike_Saul has both the hands-down the best daily news wrap-up out there (Tangle, you should all subscribe
tangle.substack.com), but also an origin story that desperately needs to be made into a coming-of-age movie.

When I was 15, I bought a 1987 Winnebago le Sharo in Colorado with my Bar Mitzvah money. Then drove it to Mexico for a new muffler then home to Philadelphia. With my permit. Fats Domino bought it from me when I was 22. https://t.co/CsqHt3duvo

Who runs this thing?

My name is Isaac Saul, I am a politics reporter who grew up in suburban Pennsylvania and has written all over the world. During the day, I’m an editor and reporter for A Plus, the positive media outlet founded by Ashton Kutcher. You may have also seen my work in TIME Magazine, Vox, Independent Journal Review, The New York Daily News or The Forward, among others. You can read more about my career as a reporter here or follow me on Twitter.


Stay informed.

As a politics reporter, I often hear from friends that the news is inaccessible. People have questions they’re too shy to ask, but want to be better informed. This newsletter is trying to solve that — and it’s delivered in a balanced, digestible, entertaining format.
