The image above is a screenshot from Andrew Sullivan's own Amazon Affiliate earning's report, provided by the staff of The Dish themselves, in an effort to frame the recent discussion around transparency in affiliate revenue:
"For years, under The Atlantic and Daily Beast, the Dish has linked to Amazon, so this isn’t a new practice by any means. Now that we are an independent site and have to meet our own uncertain budget, we might as well collect the pennies on the dollar for the items purchased on the site. As you can see, the first month brought in $1,253.91 – hardly a windfall. At that rate, if we end up making in the neighborhood of $15,000 for the year, it would just about cover our health insurance costs for both interns ($6,396 a year each)."
Not sure exactly what this accomplishes for them or the conversation, but it's interesting none the less.
