Why Read Consortium News?

Consortium News brings you in-depth coverage from a fresh perspective of the biggest stories of the day. Read us to keep up with the crises of Iran, Venezuela and WikiLeaks.

You can read The New York Times and The Washington Post if you want to know what official Washington is saying and doing on the surface.  But if you are interested in digging down deep for a critical analysis of what government is really up to and why, read the unique coverage of Consortium News.

We bring you news and analysis the establishment media shies away from or spins to fit the official cover story. You can hear them say they want to bring freedom and democracy to Venezuela and Iran, and that Julian Assange is a hacker and not a journalist. Or you can read Consortium News to learn about the establishment’s real motives.

To keep us going we depend only on donations from readers. So please help us blow past our fundraising goal this Spring and keep on keeping yourself informed.

    I rate CN as quite good, one of fortunately many sites to consider, but I am troubled when whoever now holds the editing position at CN does not answer my email from the other day.

    I used the contact access for my question, and it remains unanswered. I will abbreviate the question here to what CN will not cover, and in fact will delete references to. My posts are consistently civil. I believe they do not break the rules of the site.

    Yet on one particular subject my comments are deleted. So, again, I request, as a way to indeed verify the fine reputation CN consistently has, as indicated by the other comments here, that you clarify just what you will NOT entertain for commentary.

    I hope this comment gets through and that it deserves an answer.

    Thank you.

    CN is one of only 3 or 4 websites I read regularly, having read it from its beginnings back in the mid-90’s. Among other reasons I like it is because it typically covers a relatively small number of subjects, but in-depth, yielding continuity, and not from the conventional MSM ‘go-along-to-get-along’ ethos that drives virtually all the corporate MSM outlets. Also, CN’s credibility rating is so solid, with their accurate skepticism BEFORE the 2003 invasion of Iraq, one of those seminal ‘media-rating’ events IMO (ie; it was one of the few times in politics where there was a clear truth-testable ‘hypothesis’ — “Iraq has WMD’s” with major investigations both before and after the invasion — with a clear-cut answer—“no”. CN got that MAJOR event entirely RIGHT, the MSM got it entirely WRONG. And that wasn’t just some minor obscure question that only matters to a few policy-wonks, it was used as justification to launch an illegal invasion, killing 10’s of thousands [conservatively] and destroying the infrastructure & economy of a country. You shouldn’t be able to figuratively shrug your shoulders, mumble some insincere half-apologies, and move-on to doing the same damn type of coverage of places like Libya, Ukraine, Syria, Venezuela, etc, but the MSM pulls that trick off unfortunately.)

    Anyway, keep up the good work and another check is in the mail.

    “Why Read Consortium News?”

    Because Consortium News is one of the few publications offering facts and independent journalism rather than CIA’s war propaganda:

    Consortium News is the most useful, reasonable, in-depth news source, with the most intelligent commentary of all. Thank you and your writers for your dedication and efforts to present the truth in times difficult for real journalism.
