Robert Parry’s Consortium News is starting a $50,000 fundraiser. Parry is one of the greatest investigative journalists in the United States, and I encourage you to check them out and consider donating.
Parry explains the need for the fundraiser and Consortium News generally here. There are so many possibilities now to fund and create better media ourselves that it’s a self-indulgent waste of time to complain about the corporate media. (Certainly few people are more guilty of this than me. Indeed, if complaining about the corporate media is a crime, then I’m getting the death penalty. But as of today, I resolve to do better.)
