Consortiumnews’ Fund Drive Extended

From Journalist Robert Parry: Because our year-end fund drive got started late and because we are still far short of our modest goal of $25,000 we are extending the time frame for donations through next weekend.

So, please consider a tax-deductible donation to this Web site so we can continue to produce quality independent journalism and pay our writers for their original work writers like ex-CIA analysts Ray McGovern and Elizabeth Murray; history investigators Jim DiEugenio and Lisa Pease; experienced journalists Don North and Barbara Koeppel; and many more.

To donate by Visa/Mastercard/Discover, click here. To donate by check, make it out to Consortium for Independent Journalism [CIJ]; 2200 Wilson Blvd.; Suite 102-231; Arlington, VA 22201. To use PayPal, our account is named after our e-mail address: “consortnew @”

Donations of $100 or more qualify you for an autographed gift copy of my new book, America’s Stolen Narrative: From Washington and Madison to Nixon, Reagan and the Bushes to Obama. The book corrects some of the key false narratives that the Right has inserted into American history. (If you want a gift copy or one with a special inscription, just send me an e-mail at [email protected].)

Also, we will earmark a portion of all sales of America’s Stolen Narrative toward our goal. In other words, you can help us reach our target by buying the book by clicking here to purchase it with a Visa, Mastercard or Discover. Or you can mail a check for $24.95 to The Media Consortium; 2200 Wilson Blvd., Suite 102-231; Arlington VA 22201. Or, you can get the e-book version from or

You also can use the Web site’s PayPal account (“consortnew @”) to buy the book, but please remember to tell us where to ship your order.

As always, thanks for your support.

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.
