From Editor Robert Parry: Though Consortiumnews operates with a very modest budget, we take pride in being there for our readers, posting stories seven days a week and nearly year round. Over the next couple of weeks, however, we will be working on a summer schedule that may mean fewer stories and some delays in responding to your e-mails.
Filling book orders might be delayed, too, so you may want to order our books through Amazon if you need something right away. And, if a comment gets tagged for moderating – which can happen for a variety of reasons – please don’t take offense if it takes us longer than usual to review it.
Thanks for your patience and support.
Robert Parry is a longtime investigative reporter who broke many of the Iran-Contra stories for the Associated Press and Newsweek in the 1980s. He founded Consortiumnews.com in 1995 to create an outlet for well-reported journalism that was being squeezed out of an increasingly trivialized U.S. news media.
