Our Budget

The late Robert Parry, founder of Consortium News.

Consortium News relies entirely on our loyal readers to continue this project in independent journalism begun by Robert Parry in 1995. Our 26th year, like our first, is made possible only by the generosity of our readers.

Our annual budget is about $250,000, or a little more than $20,000 a month, which we must raise in four fund drives per year. Our biggest new expense has been our webcast CN Live! If we exceed this amount we would add an experienced Washington correspondent and writers from other parts of the world.

But for now we need to ask that you make a donation just to keep our operations going, to pay our writers, editors, video producer, on-air hosts, support staff and technical and administrative fees.  You can continue reading Consortium News and watching CN Live! for free, of course. Or you can consider making a contribution today. Thank you!

    I just donated and recommend that others do the same to preserve one of the best bastions of independent, integrity-based journalism around. Consortium News is a voice in the wilderness, holding powerful entities accountable in a way that few media sources are willing to do these days. This is needed now more than ever as other previously reliable sources are now becoming compromised. Thank you for all that you do!

    Man oh man, and women oh ladies, I already sent some funds in, but this place is special, so I’ll send some more. I hope others out there who read the news here consider the value of getting the facts from a wide set of views. It has become increasingly difficult nowadays and that is why this place is special.
    I super appreciate the editorial discretion.
