The legendary journalist and filmmaker has had a long association with this website and has a message for its readers and viewers.
John Pilger is a great journalist and filmmaker who has been challenging the establishments of several nations for half a century with influential books, films and articles, reporting from the American Deep South to the jungles of Vietnam and to the halls of power in Washington, Whitehall and Canberra. He has a simple message:
Please support the journalism of Consortium News.
During our marathon coverage of Julian Assange’s September extradition hearing in London, Pilger wrote us: “Congratulations on your Herculean effort! A lesson in real journalism … CN coverage of Julian has been by far the most comprehensive.”
And last week he tweeted:
https://t.co/9fJXG86hTz was started 25 years ago by the late Robert Parry, one of America's finest journalists. It is the newspaper you can no longer buy at the newsstand — an oasis of real journalism, which now needs your support urgently. https://t.co/IRVK3Gtyqt

During our 25th Anniversary CN Live! webcast, Pilger said:
So please help us reach our Winter Fund goal so that Consortium News can keep providing the kind of real journalism that is rapidly disappearing in the midst of an all-out war of partisanship that masquerades today as journalism.
