As America enters a new political era, the dangers to the Republic remain grave and the need for vigilant – and independent – journalism remains great.

At, we have been fighting the good fight for honest information since 1995. In the late 1990s, we exposed the partisan agenda behind many of the right-wing attacks on the Clinton presidency.

And in the grim eight years of the Bush presidency, we chronicled the many abuses of the Constitution, democracy – and common decency.

If we can secure the needed funding, we will be there again to counter unfair right-wing attacks on the Obama administration (you know they’re coming) – and we will keep the pressure on the Democrats to be serious about rolling back the unconstitutional practices of the Bush-Cheney years.

But we need your help.

If only 1,000 of our readers would agree to set up monthly donations of just $10 or $20, we would have the budget to pay our small staff and the talented freelance writers who produce valuable journalism for us, people like former CIA analyst Ray McGovern.

All you have to do is click on our secure donation page, go to “I want to make a recurring donation,” and set the amount and the frequency of your tax-deductible donation from your Visa or Mastercard.

Plus, if you sign up now for a recurring donation – or if you’ve done so in the past – you qualify for one of our gift books: Neck Deep; Secrecy & Privilege; or Lost History. (Just send us an e-mail at to tell us which book and where to send it.)

You can view your donation as an insurance policy to guarantee that today's hope for genuine change in America isn’t squandered again.

Thank you for your support.

Robert Parry, Editor

Robert Parry broke many of the Iran-Contra stories in the 1980s for the Associated Press and Newsweek. He founded in 1995 as the Internet's first investigative magazine. He saw it as a way to combine modern technology and old-fashioned journalism to counter the increasing triviality of the mainstream U.S. news media.
