Consortium News on Friday launched its Spring Fund Drive to raise enough money to pay our writers, editors and staff to continue providing you with the Web’s best take on the news.
When Consortium News was founded in 1995 by the late investigative reporter Robert Parry, it stood alone as the first independent news site on the internet. It was and remains independent because it also stands apart from the mainstream. Corporate media suppresses news and omits facts to promote bi-partisan support for an aggressive U.S. foreign policy and hyper-partisanship on just about everything else.
Beholden to no party, government, corporation or major donor, Consortium News depends on the generosity of its readers to provide a wholly non-partisan and internationalist take on U.S. domestic and international news.
It provides detailed coverage of issues the mainstream ignore — like the prosecution of WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange — plus angles on widely reported stories that you won’t find in the corporate press. To continue the mission Bob Parry started now more than 25 years ago, we ask for your generous support during our Spring Fund Drive.
