From Editor Robert Parry: We are at the end of our fall fund drive, but remain about $7,500 short of our goal of $25,000. If you can, please help so we can continue Consortiumnews as a source of independent and investigative journalism. We also are offering some special gifts.
From Editor Robert Parry: At Consortiumnews, we welcome substantive comments about our articles, but comments should avoid abusive language toward other commenters or our writers, racial or religious slurs, and allegations that are unsupported by facts. There are plenty of conspiracy theory sites; this is a journalistic one.
From Editor Robert Parry: At Consortiumnews, we try to minimize the number of fund drives per year, now only three. But it’s important that we meet those goals if we are to continue this unique investigative news site that has been providing articles on important topics for 19 years.
Some of our special stories in September focused on the new Cold War over Ukraine, President Obama plunging back into the Iraq War while expanding U.S. airstrikes into Syria, and the revival of the Contra-cocaine scandal.
From Editor Robert Parry: For the past decade, Consortiumnews.com has been home to the important writings of ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern, providing him editing support and supporting his extraordinary efforts to inform the world’s public about misuses of U.S. intelligence. But we, in turn, need your help.
From Editor Robert Parry: Over the past 19 years, Consortiumnews has challenged Official Washington’s misguided “group think” – from exposing Nixon-Reagan dirty tricks to standing up for journalist Gary Webb to exposing false arguments for war. Now we ask you to take one of the following actions to help us continue.
Some our special stories in August focused on Israel’s war on Gaza, the biased U.S. reporting on the Ukraine crisis, and the 50th anniversary of the Gulf of Tonkin deception.
From Editor Robert Parry: For nearly two decades, Consortiumnews has tried to do what true supporters of democracy want journalists to do: provide the public with reliable information about issues that matter most, especially questions of war or peace. But to do that we need your help.
We may not be filing our usual allotment of stories through the end of August due to vacations. So we invite readers to look back at earlier Consortiumnews.com stories, including those highlighted in our latest “In Case You Missed…” posting for July.
