    Fantastic! Just for this, Consortium News is now the best and I can finally say I trust news again (NPR’s betrayal is a sad thing in deed). Chris Hedges and Jill Stein !

    Congratulations for adding such stellar individuals of conscience to your board. This is the crème de la crème of our country’s upholders of Constitutional ideals, its most stalwart defenders and the most trenchant, eye-opening critics of how and where that Document has been perverted.
    This is firepower and horsepower added to the edifice of Consortium News, a further bulwark of much required for these times passionate intellectual gravitas. Robert Parry’s vision not only continues, but is indeed embellished by these additions of such stature.
    Well done!
