Get a Rare Look into a Dark History

Ronald Reagan and his 1980 vice-presidential running mate George H.W.  Bush.

From Editor Robert Parry: Our thank-you gift for donations of $100 or more to our spring fund drive is my book, America’s Stolen Narrative, detailing new evidence on the 1980 Reagan campaign’s secret contacts with Iran, plus a DVD of a “Frontline” documentary that I co-wrote featuring many of the same characters.

Oligarch-Free News

Journalist Robert Parry.

From Editor Robert Parry: Since our founding in 1995, Consortiumnews.com has provided our readers with truly independent journalism – and we have relied on donations from our readers to do so. We’ve never had some billionaire “oligarch” paying our bills and pulling our strings.

Consortiumnews’ Spring Fund Goal: $25,000

From Editor Robert Parry: Though it doesn’t feel like spring in much of the United States, we are starting our spring fund drive with a target of $25,000 to keep Consortiumnews.com alive. And we are offering a special thank-you package for readers who donate $100 or more.

In Case You Missed…

Some of our special stories in February focused on the good and the bad of past U.S. presidents — and on the resurgence of the neocons as they seek new wars in the Middle East and provoked a U.S.-Russia confrontation over Ukraine.

A Reminder on Book Sales

From Editor Robert Parry: A key element in our financing of Consortiumnews.com is the sale of my books, even at reduced prices. For instance, you can get the three-book set – Secrecy & Privilege, Neck Deep and America’s Stolen Narrative – at the discount price of $34 and still help sustain this site.

In Case You Missed…

Some of our special stories in January focused on the NSA surveillance scandal, the back story of Robert Gates’s new memoir, the Right’s continued assault on democracy, and the collapse of accusations against Syria and Libya.

Thanking Our Recurring Donors

From Editor Robert Parry: In the gaps between our quarterly fund drives, Consortiumnews.com is sustained mostly by our recurring donors who have agreed to make monthly donations, sometimes only a few dollars and sometimes a couple of hundred. I want to extend to these contributors our special thanks. If any reader wishes to join them…

In Case You Missed…

Some of our special stories in December 2013 focused on the Saudi role in terrorism, the importance of national security “leakers,” the collapsing case pinning an infamous Sarin attack on Syria, and the renewed war over “the war on Christmas.”

Last Call for Consortiumnews’ Fund Drive

From Editor Robert Parry: How much money we can raise in our year-end fund drive goes a long way to determining how much investigative journalism we can do in the New Year. My hope is that we can expand on our highly successful 2013 as highlighted in our year-end review.

A 2013 Lookback at Consortiumnews

The year 2013 saw the United States bogged down in ideological conflicts and veering close to new wars in the Middle East, but reporting at Consortiumnews.com contributed to a fuller understanding of the facts domestically and internationally as the fever of partisanship and warfare showed signs of breaking.
