Consortium News, Unique in Independent Media

Certain things set Consortium News apart from the independent media landscape that are worth noting as we launch our Winter Fund Drive.

While there is a lot of competition these days from several alternative media sites, Consortium News stands unique among them.

For one thing, we are the oldest online independent news site in the United States, having been founded by the late investigative journalist Robert Parry. We went online in November 1995 before many mainstream media outlets, like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and The Washington Post.  We even beat Salon online by five days.

There is another thing that makes Consortium News special. Unlike other independent sites, we are run by dissidents who have been on the inside, at high levels. We understand what’s wrong with Establishment media and the intelligence services, like no one else.

Robert Parry, founder of Consortium News.

Our top editors, who have worked at The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, The (London) Sunday Times and other mainstream outlets, possess the skills learned in professional journalism without the horrendous political agenda of the corporate media, especially when it comes to foreign affairs and intelligence matters, not to mention our coverage of Julian Assange, the Middle East and Russiagate.

Our columnists also include a dissident former C.I.A. officer, and an editor at the International Herald Tribune. Our video producer worked at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. Nothing can match the inside knowledge we bring to our readers and viewers.

No other independent media site can make that claim.

It is the generous support of those readers and viewers that have kept Consortium News going strong into our 26th year.

We depend on you to continue this unique media project. So please make a year-end donation during this holiday season to ensure the ongoing success of your best source for independent news, analysis and commentary.

And remember, all donations to Consortium News are 100% Tax Free. Remember us as the 2021 Tax Year comes to a close.

    What hope we may entertain to hold in these profound times of peril is borne by the substance of each article with which Consortium News gifts us. It’s all about the ‘Regulars’ who populate these pages with their informed insights. The takeaway ‘sticks to yer ribs’ for being meaningful.
    “What’s in yer wallet?”Whatever amount it is, do the right thing, make an as generous as possible gift to Consortium News and its stellar authors’ continuity of purpose and imperative longevity of legacy-building herein. Bills, how they dog us all, large and small, we proles.
    CN is not just an island of intellectual safety—it’s a place to repair your sails and patch your leaky hull before setting forth once again into this troubled world reprovisioned and armed with truth.
    C’mon, this place is a life boat. You know it and I know it too. Keep the ship afloat! And look at the world experience of those bordering the mast head! History-makers themselves! A finer crew you are not going to find.
