Spring Fund Drive Begins

From Editor Robert Parry: We are setting our spring fundraising goal at $30,000, so we can continue publishing this independent-minded news site, which produces journalism that demands real facts from all sides in important public debates while rejecting Washington’s groupthinks.

You can donate by credit card online (we accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover), by PayPal (our PayPal account is named after our original email address, “consortnew @ aol.com”), or by mailing a check to Consortium for Independent Journalism (CIJ); 2200 Wilson Blvd., Suite 102-231; Arlington VA 22201.

Journalist Robert Parry

We also are registered with PayPal’s Giving Fund under the name Consortium for Independent Journalism. And, since we are a 501-c-3 non-profit, donations by American taxpayers may be tax-deductible.

What makes Consortiumnews special is its commitment to old-fashioned journalistic principles. We try to be evenhanded and fair toward everyone regardless of popularity (or lack thereof) – and we insist on evidence before serious accusations are made.

We don’t simply run with the media pack, which I realize can annoy some people at times when they want us to join in supporting a favored political agenda. But that is not our job. Our job is to objectively evaluate evidence and put it into a reasonable context, which is why we are often out of step with the mainstream media.

But that is also why our stories, overwhelmingly, stand the test of time. And our commitment to honest journalism is our promise to you, our readers. Thank you for your support.

Robert Parry

    Thanks for all your great work. I just made a donation through PayPal. I could not find anything there to set up recurring payments. Perhaps you can get a PayPal button setup on your homepage that allows for automatic recurring donations to be made like I have seen on other websites.

    I discovered Consortiumnews last year and would encourage anyone using the site to support it. A trusted news source is becoming a rare thing these days, the reason I seek out Consortium daily. I appreciate your hard work and sense of integrity and while I don’t normally contribute without serious investigation as to how funds are spent, I have no concerns here. Keep up the good work!

    Robert Parry’s splendid piece on Trump’s foreign policy incoherence and how we got there (coupled with the recent complete surrender of Marc Ash to Putin-phobia) have pushed me over the edge — and I will be sending $10 a month from my meager Social Security check for the foreseeable future. Keep up the good work. Let’s remove the rich from power and have real (not fake) democracy, with no rich and no poor.
