The Internet media company said the total financing for this round comes to approximately $3.25 million. The San Francisco-based company added that Fuchs would join the board of directors. Salon CEO Michael O' Donnell said in a statement that the funding would provide the company "with more financial strength to weather the current Internet shakeout."

Its premium service lets readers view exclusive content--with or without the advertising banners and pop-ups, depending on the individual's preference.
