Thank You, Readers!

From Editor Robert Parry: We came close to meeting our $25,000 goal for the spring fund drive with entirely small- to medium-sized donations. Thanks so much to everyone who was able to contribute! For anyone who still wants to donate, we will continue our DVD/book gift offer for the next two weeks.

You can make a tax-deductible donation by using a credit card online (we accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover) or you can mail a check to Consortium for Independent Journalism (CIJ); 2200 Wilson Blvd., Suite 102-231; Arlington VA 22201.

For readers wanting to use PayPal, you can address contributions to our account, which is named after our e-mail address: “consortnew @”. We are also registered with PayPal’s Giving Fund under the name Consortium for Independent Journalism. (Since we are a 501-c-3 non-profit, donations by American taxpayers may be tax-deductible.)

We are offering as a thank-you gift for donations of $125 or more a book and a DVD on how two pivotal presidential elections – 1968 and 1980 – were distorted by what look to be near-treasonous schemes to undermine U.S. negotiations with foreign governments. (Neither of these well-documented cases was touched by CNN in its series of electoral dirty-dealing.)

But you can review the evidence yourself by getting a signed copy of my latest book, America’s Stolen Narrative, and a DVD of a PBS documentary that I co-wrote entitled “The Election Held Hostage.” (If you want the gift set, please follow up your donation with an e-mail to us at with instructions on where to mail it. We’ll pay the shipping charges.)

Again, thanks for your support and for making our two decades of honest journalism possible.
