An Update to Our Readers on Editor Robert Parry

As many Consortiumnews.com readers know, Editor Robert Parry recently suffered a stroke, as he described in this article posted New Year’s Eve. With some ongoing related health issues Robert is currently hospitalized working on recovery.

It is difficult to say when Consortiumnews.com might be up and running with regular publishing again but we wanted to inform readers – as well as contributors – of the situation and ask for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.

Robert greatly appreciates all the support from readers over the years, knowing that without you, this valuable forum for independent journalism would not be possible. All of us involved in this project over the years – as readers, writers, or donors – greatly value this website and we can assure you that every effort will be made to continue providing a home for independent journalism.

Thank you for your patience, understanding and support.

– Nat Parry, former Associate Editor of Consortiumnews.com and co-author of Neck Deep: The Disastrous Presidency of George W. Bush

    I will continue reading Consortiumnews daily and contributing as asked, until we hear again from Robert Parry, clearly one of America’s greatest Journalists… Thank you Nat.

      Bob Van Noy’s comment speaks for me too….
      Robert Parry’s focus right now must be to regain his strength and recover.

      So much of what Robert writes stays fresh and relevant.

      Yes, thank you Nat.
      And please, when possible, post an article from the archives that shines a light on current events. Robert Parry’s 2010 “Haiti and America’s Historic Debt” was posted one week ago on Jan 12th. Another amazing indictment of the brutality of power which crushed Trump’s “s…hole” comment as one more lie.

      Robert Parry’s “Thomas Jefferson: America’s Founding Sociopath” July 4th 2014 piece:
      https://consortiumnews.com/2014/07/04/thomas-jefferson-americas-founding-sociopath/
      is another fascinating piece that exposes Jefferson’s hypocrisy. Jefferson, apparently, glommed onto a self serving Tea Party style employment of “states rights” over the broader ideals of the Constitution in order to protect himself and other slave holders and led directly to the Civil War.
      A fascinating read.

      • January 19, 2018 at 3:10 pm

        Having read Howard Zinn’s “A People’s History Of The United States, 1492 – 2001,” I am now aware that the Founding Fathers were all dogs and the American Constitution has been mythologized into something grand and noble. Leftists are right to point to the lofty words – that often don’t mean what they seem to mean – when making arguments in support of human rights, justice, freedom of speech and equality, but disingenuously leave out of their pro human rights narrative the fact that the document that they are quoting isn’t what it appears to be.

        Get well Robert. And thanks!

    I find it beyond tragic that Mr. Parry suffered his recent health ailments. Mr. Parry was always a godsend, illuminating areas that were otherwise concealed or filled with obfuscation.

    I can’t count the times over the last few years that I’d eagerly anticipate his well written and always insightful pieces on the most recent hot topic of the day. Mr. Parry would never disappoint, consistently doling out facts and analyses that were unequaled.

    What’s awful is that it was basically the establishment Russophobia that got to Mr. Parry. Here we have a valiant professional journalist (one of the best in the world, bar none) doing his due diligence only to succumb to a stroke likely because of all the stress in unearthing the skulduggery behind Russiagate and the most responsible people in the room totally ignoring or pathetically attempting to undermine his astonishingly valuable work.

    If this portends a vastly diminished role for Mr. Parry, it’s saddening beyond belief.

    Here’s a tip of the cap to Mr. Parry, a once in a generation journalist-intellectual-commentator who always fought the truthful fight regardless of where it led him.

    • Nina Flannery
      January 19, 2018 at 12:30 pm

      I agree in every way. Down here in Oklahoma, I depend on his work as a reality anchor, working against the tide of an unquestioning support for Hillary among the Cleveland County Democrats. I have lost old friends by challenging the prevailing story of Russiagate. Robert Parry and Stephen Cohen have kept me from despair. I mean it. All good wishes, Mr. Parry, for your recovery.

      • Drew Hunkins
        January 19, 2018 at 4:19 pm

        “I have lost old friends by challenging the prevailing story of Russiagate.”

        Bingo. Sounds all too familiar. Always remember, it is THEY who are deluded, partisan and irrational, not you. Stay strong.

        By the way, some other intellectuals-writers-commentators you may want to peruse during Mr. Parry’s tragic absence: Norman Solomon, Diana Johnstone, John Pilger, McGovern, James Petras, Glen Ford, Mike Whitney, and Paul Craig Roberts, and of course Stephen Cohen.

        • Lois Gagnon
          January 19, 2018 at 5:00 pm

          Living in Rachel Maddow fan and home country of Western Mass., I haven’t been winning any popularity contests either speaking out against the Russia-gate psyop. It’s the price of being a dissident.

          Don’t forget to read Chris Hedges, Caitlin Johnstone, Finian Cunningham and Paul Street as well.

          Praying for a full recovery for our fearless journalistic leader Robert Parry.

          • PEG
            January 20, 2018 at 5:01 am

            Also praying for a full recovery for the great Robert Parry.

            If he should be reading these comments: The most important thing after a stroke is 100% focus on REHAB to ensure full recovery. Then making sure no future strokes occur.

            Regarding the above list of “kindred spirits” – here are some additional names, in no particular order, including intellectuals, journalists, and assorted youtube commentators:

            Glenn Greenwald
            Jimmy Dore
            Debbie Lusignan
            Jamarl Thomas
            Noam Chomsky
            Jesse Ventura
            Abby Martin
            Oliver Stone
            Ron Paul/Daniel McAdams
            Seymour Hersh (unusually quiet as of late)

    • Jonathan

      Absolutely second all that. Very best wishes to you Mr Parry and all good wishes for a speedy recovery.

    • Realist
      January 19, 2018 at 6:27 pm

      Mr. Parry has been absolutely brilliant and dogged in his determination to expose the light of truth to the world. I do hope he can make a comeback, it would mean so much to so many.

      As the medical professionals who read this blog know, the effects of a stroke on vision are not as simple as altered refraction or even retinal damage, but the way the brain interprets the signal it receives. Some stroke victims can see perfectly sharply but cannot make sense of what they see. Whether the function can come back as the brain heals, or reading skills can be re-learned, we can only hope. Judging by his article describing his condition, none of Mr. Parry’s cognitive or verbal abilities seem to be diminished one iota. In the future, he may need assistance in transcribing his thoughts onto paper (or a computer monitor), but his return will still be a blessing for the world. I look forward to it. Until then, he deserves to rest and peacefully mend.

    His work and the hope that it brings is beyond the scope of a comment.

    I am so grateful to have stumbled upon this website and hope and wish and pray this this and more like it can continue to shine a light in the dark deluded world of confusion and mainstream media deceit.

Each day as I search my e-mails, I look for Consortium News and wonder how Robert Parry is doing, along with a wish that he’s doing well, along with a worry about the skullduggery that is surely afoot that no one but he will notice or report. Do keep us informed, and give him my best wishes. Anne Kass

    Since discovering Consortiumnews in 2014, I have begun every day by checking the site for the latest articles. As a man in my mid-twenties, the fearless independent journalism and respect for your readers’ intellect has given me hope during dark, overwhelming times while also driving me to discover more about the world around me and the people in it.

    I wish Robert a speedy recovery and my best goes to his family during what is surely a very difficult time. Despite the constant rumblings of the world around us, all it takes is a scare like Robert’s to realize what our priorities really are.

    Goodness knows, when Robert’s health returns, there will be a coalition of willing and eager readers like myself prepared to enjoy Consortiumnews again.

    Consortiumnews stands at the top of the list of independent sources I rely on to find out what is really going on in the world, versus the myths and propaganda perpetrated by the state and corporate owned media organisations.

    Robert writes with such clarity on issues that are often complex and deliberately clouded by political machinations. In a world where our political, government and journalistic organisations seem to be in the grip of dark forces, his integrity stands out and give us hope.

    My best wishes to him for a speedy and full recovery.

You are appreciated and I do wish for your recovery. However I do not believe it is fair to pressure you by saying that we need you. I see your work and I know I can do more and would feel guilty asking you to push yourself any harder than you already do. You need to take care of yourself and know that you have indeed provided us all with inspiration and an example to follow. You have our gratitude for conscientious work well done. If we are blessed to have you back again and healthy at some future date, so much the better, but do not rush your convalescence on our account. Many thanks again for spreading some light.

You, more than any journalist I can think of, embody the power of ethos to persuade. America’s Stolen Narrative has changed my perspective in many ways, but I wouldn’t have been open to your argument were it not for your honesty. Imagine trusting a journalist!

    Thank you, Robert, for not remaining silent! If you are not able to write new material for a while, we can always go to the CN archives and find great reading and even new discoveries there, or read any of your books.

    As one can see from the comments, you have friends and followers on every continent.
    I’m one of them, a Finn residing in Sweden, checking your website every day.

    Bob,
    I have respected you immensely going back to the 1980s, when you rejected the gilded MSM path to follow your conscience into work that led to Consortium News, an online breath of journalistic fresh air. Hang in there buddy.

    Consortium News continues to be one of my primary on line news sources (along with the Intercept & Global Research) and I share other commenters sentiments and hope that Robert recovers soon. I miss his insightful reporting on Russiagate group think and hope to see others join Ray McGovern in challenging the chorus on Consortium News and elsewhere.

    I do not usually post, but this warrants an exception. I have been following CN for years now, and I have all of the Parry books.The enlightenment, education, and nurturing my open mind and critical thinking skills that CN has provided are without parallel, and are priceless. Consortium News also attracts and brings together a gathering of great minds and thinkers, and it is Mr. Parry’s talent that brings us together, and for that I am forever grateful. Best of health to you, Mr. Parry, and I am sure that I speak for everybody here when I say that we will all be looking forward to your next article. A speedy recovery, Sir.

    Best wishes for a full recovery, Mr. Parry! You have been a reliable voice for truth at a time when powerful forces are doing everything they can to suppress the truth. It would be a great loss if your voice and those of the other contributors and commenters at ConsortiumNews were to disappear, but your recovery is the top priority. Thanks for the update, and thanks to those who are helping to maintain ConsortiumNews and the wonderful comments section.

    The information communicated by this site has always been important. As the years went on, however, I came to appreciate more and more not just what Mr Parry said, but how he said it. His pieces, always based on facts, maintained a level of decorum and dare I say sanity increasingly lacking elsewhere. He has been an excellent example of how to conduct discourse.

    Get well soon, please.

  98. January 19, 2018 at 4:48 pm

    Dear Robert,

    Please take all the time you need to rehabilitate. Though I eagerly look forward to reading your posts on a regular basis, you health is of utmost importance now; I’ll be patient! Get some much needed and deserved rest. I mentioned you often to my journalism students at Temple University-Japan. I hold you up to them as one of the true, honest and courageous journalists in America today. I thank you for your hard work and sacrifices.

    I hope Robert will recover fully and soon but make no mistake he is a victim of vicious and brutal class war which results in increased death toll among those in forties and fifties even starts among millennials as proven by statistics over last decades.

    Time to stop pretending, stop ignoring shells and bullets flying by our ears and begin eradicating oligarchic filth that scorches the earth not for any ideological reason by in self defense.

    Save our Souls and bodies before is too late or prepare for more victims if class warriors like Parry, warriors for peace because it is truth that destroys war and enables true social peace.

    The prayers of our family is for you and a quick recovery, Mr. Parry.. What you are and what you stand for are so important to me personally, but to the many others who look forward each day to CN, and to everyone who appreciates the search for and the revelation of the truth.. Get well and get back to work. Doctor’s orders.

    Dear Nat considering what the Parry family is dealing with I would like to thank you for the update, and wish your Dad and all the family the best as you all move through this experience.

    The first thing, as you know Nat, is to take care of yourself’s during these times. I don’t have to tell you Nat how the most important matter is your Father’s health, and your family’s well being. The news will continue to be there, but taking care of what has appeared at your family’s doorstep is of the most importance.

    I would suggest my fellow readers check out Robert Parry’s archived material, while Robert recoups.

    I’m leaving a link to Oliver Stone’s ‘Ukraine on Fire’ for all to enjoy. Nat as you know your father plays a big part in Mr Stone’s film.

  132. Baby Gerald
    January 20, 2018 at 10:19 am

    Thank you for the update, Nat. Like everyone here, I wish Robert a quick and complete recovery. As a recent devotee of Consortium News, Mr. Parry has shown himself to be a beam of light in a darkening world and I visit regularly for a glint of sanity.

    In a comment toward the top of the thread, PEG offers a great list of other sources for truth while Mr. Parry recovers his strength. The Jimmy Dore Show has been a revelation to me and a place I turn to daily for news and information. Unlike many of his Young Turk colleagues, his respect for this Russia scare is nil.

    Let me add a couple of other places to turn, all of which are on YouTube:

    • Economic Update/Democracy @ Work with Dr. Richard Wolff
    • Redacted Tonight with Lee Camp
    • The Real News Network
    • The Humanist Report with Mike Figueredo

    Again, best wishes to a full and speedy recovery, Mr. Parry– we are all pulling for you!

    sending love and healing energy Robert. You are one of the scant few to ferret out the truth and present it in a way the makes complete sense (way above and apart from the confusion of what’s going on in the world and how it’s reported by other “news” outlets). I cannot express how appreciative I am of what you do. It’s my hope and intention that you return to full health and continue doing what is so appreciated by so many. The body is magically regenerative if you give it what it needs– may you do just that and I and all of your readers will eagerly await your return.

  141. January 20, 2018 at 1:07 pm

    Being a German frequent traveller to Russia, living in Berlin ( about the same age as you ) I very much appreciate your independent view on the relations between Russia and the West.

    You are doing a great job making facts and background information available to all those who get constantly brainwashed by the leading media.

    I hope you recover soon and will be able continuing telling the trouth.

    Wishing you All the Best !

    i am living in Germany and I am reading quiet regularly your blog. Through the whole day, also as a citizen of Germany, I get ‘covered’ with stories and news that lack often the human sense and the fundamental logic. So the stories does not match the experienced reality, what leave you with no good feeling. Then comes your blog and similars, that gives the necessary balance and a better sounding explanation. I would not like to miss your source of peace.

    Which you a good and fast recovering!

    What better way to honor Robert than for all of us to make a donation now. Let’s all dig deep.

    Robert, fervently hoping for a full and speedy recovery!

    Please let Robert know just how much many of us are thinking of him,
    hoping that he may be one of those who is able to emerge from a stroke
    and do very well, given the right level of patience, and medical care. The readership
    of ConsortiumNews, of which I have been an avid part for some years, ALSO will
    have to be very patient.

    ConsortiumNews remains one of THE finest sources of independent, objective
    reporting that is available anywhere. It is a treasure.

    Don, from Boston

    Thanks for the update Nat.

    I join the many many others wishing and praying (whether or not religious!) for your dad’s recovery!

    I hope he can return and lead Consortiumnews to many more years of reliable independent journalism.

    Nat, I missed the announcement of the stroke. I’ve emailed him directly for years and applaud his excellent work over the decades. I sincerely hope he has as a good a recovery as possible. Diet matters.

    Please post updates on the site, maybe a new column heading?

    I’m so sorry to hear the recent hardships in way of health that Robert is experiencing right now. I’ve been a ferocious reader of this site and it’s content since discovering it and have been grateful for the thorough and deeply informing articles.
    I found this by way of my interest in Gary Webb.

    Thank you so much for all your contributions Robert. I wish you well and a speedy recovery!

    Robert should consider this for perspective, and hope, for I had a stoke in 1993, 25 years ago, and I’ve recovered nearly completely, enough that no one would know without good measures. Anything I can do, he can do better.

    Thank you for the update on your father and on your valuable website.

    Please tell him that I wish for his steady and successful recovery from the stroke.

    He is needed. His work is needed, and I hope that some way is found to maintain the work of the site, even
    in what must be trying times for the family, since these are trying times for all people of good will and intelligence.

    I was so sorry to learn of Robert’s stroke. I can’t express how much his sane voice is missed in these increasingly turbulent times. I find I am falling into depression lately because there seems to be no guiding editor who is keeping an eye on where we are going. We have good writers, and many who are trying, but Robert’s Consortium had a cohesive goal that he kept on track, and I find I miss that a great deal.

    I’m happy that you, Nat, (or someone) is continuing to contact writers and news people to keep us going. Some of these writers (like Doctorow, or McGovern, or other VIPS members) are not to be found at other liberal or progressive web sites like Common Dreams, Truthout, or Intercept, so I hope you will continue to search out these people for their much needed views and insights.

    Meanwhile, all my prayers and best wishes go to Robert and to his recovery!!

    p.s. I have had this question in the back of my mind for some time. It was revived recently with a recent reference to Seymore Hersh. I’ve wondered, why, if he can’t get published in papers in the US, Consortium can’t publish his articles? Are they just too expensive, or what?

    I just re-read Robert’s December 1 article, “The Scalp-Taking of General Flynn” and it reminded me once again why I support this site and Robert’s writing in particular. I very much appreciate his effort at realism and fairness, as opposed to spouting knee-jerk arguments based on ideology. Republicans have in the past been just as absurd in their attacks (if not more) as Democratic operatives today. Through many years Robert Parry has been a voice of reason. Robert, your readers hope you will continue to speak for many more years.

    Dear Nat,

    I am twenty years older than your good father – hence the informality. I trust you do not mind.

    I remember corresponding with your father about an essay I wrote on the MH17 (Malaysian airways).

    I, of course, was an avid reader of Robert Parry’s work – professional, documented, serious, highly informative.

    And I will miss him.

    May I tender my heartfelt condolence to you and family.

    With great respect.

    Utterly dismayed to read this news. Consortium News has been my balancing rod against the MSM over the past decade. Articles always heavily laced with links that allowed you to personally validate or query the claims being made. I have learnt so much while being given different perspectives on events and individuals because of this site. I hope the integrity of Consortium News continues forward but feel a key part of the driving force has been removed with his passing. There are so few of these old school journalists still with us amongst the miasma of lazy news (mis)information on the Net it is hard to get a balanced picture of what is really going on. Consortium News is one of the few to be relied on.
