Member support is crucial to MinnPost. As a thank you for their donations, we’re giving our generous supporters pre-sale access and a $10 discount on tickets to Defending Democracy, our 12th Anniversary Celebration, featuring special guest Brian Klaas, set for Monday, Nov. 18, at the Cowles Center.

Member pre-sale tickets are now available through the Cowles Center box office. Members received an email today with codes for both presale access and their $10 discount. (If you’re a member and didn’t receive the email, drop a line to, and we’ll get you the codes!)


And if you’re not a member, join right now with a donation of any amount, and then contact for the pre-sale and discount codes. Ticket sales to the general public will open tomorrow, Oct. 10.

Klaas, a Minnesota native, is a weekly columnist for The Washington Post, a professor at University College London, and the host of the popular podcast, “Power Corrupts.” He’s a frequent expert guest on international news outlets, including CNN, BBC, NPR, and Bloomberg, and wrote the book on election rigging (literally), so expect an insightful conversation when he joins MinnPost editor Andrew Putz for the event.

    I wonder what Mr Klass would say about the power of his employer, Mr Bezos? Or Mr Bloomberg? Or of any of those mega media outlets, to define the narrative?

    Looking at his podcast page, it would seem that power only corrupts the bad people. Good thing most of the people leading America and Europe are good.
