Last Call for Fall Fund Drive

From Editor Robert Parry: We have gotten to within about $6,000 of our fall fund goal of $25,000, thanks to a late surge in donations. If you haven’t contributed and want to help us reach our goal, please do so now as we conclude this important fund drive. Donations of any size are appreciated.

Falling Short on Fall Fund Drive

From Editor Robert Parry: We are wrapping up our fall fund drive this week and have barely gotten 40 percent of the way toward our modest goal of $25,000. For this independent news site to survive, we must at least come close to our targets. If you can, please help. Donations of any size are…

Help Consortiumnews Fight ‘Group Thinks’

Barack Obama, then President-elect, and President George W. Bush at the White House during the 2008 transition.

From Editor Robert Parry: In our almost 20 years, Consortiumnews has had one preeminent goal: to challenge and correct false narratives because we know how misguided “group thinks” – especially in a nation as powerful as the United States – can get many innocent people killed and cause lots of other damage.

Parry to Receive I.F. Stone Award

Journalist Robert Parry.

From Editor Robert Parry: Our nearly two decades of work at Consortiumnews were recently recognized by Harvard’s Nieman Foundation in awarding me the I.F. Stone Medal for Journalistic Independence. But this honor really is for all those who have written for this Web site and our many readers who have supported us with donations.

A Reminder about Comment Policy

From Editor Robert Parry: At Consortiumnews, we welcome substantive comments about our articles, but comments should avoid abusive language toward other commenters or our writers, racial or religious slurs (including anti-Semitism and Islamophobia), and allegations that are unsupported by facts.

Any Thank-You Gifts Gone Missing?

From Editor Robert Parry: Our Spring Fund Drive ended in late April, so the thank-you gifts should have arrived by now — either the “Kill the Messenger” movie DVD plus the CD of Gary Webb and me discussing the Contra-cocaine scandal in 1996 (for donations of $150 or more) or just the CD (for donations of lesser amounts).

Just $1,000 to Go in Spring Fund Drive

Journalist Robert Parry.

From Editor Robert Parry: We’ve gotten to within $1,000 of our reduced $25,000 goal for the Spring Fund Drive. So, please, if you can help us get over this final hump, I’d be very appreciative. We should then have enough money to get through the summer months.

Last Push for Spring Fund Drive

Journalist Robert Parry.

From Editor Robert Parry: I want to thank those readers who have been able to donate to our Spring Fund Drive. But we remain almost $5,000 short of our reduced goal of $25,000, which is the absolute minimum we need to carry us through the summer. So, please, if you can help…

Still Not Halfway to Spring Fund Goal

Journalist Robert Parry.

From Editor Robert Parry: We want to wrap up our spring fund drive soon, but we’re still not even halfway to our goal of $35,000. So let’s see if we can at least reach the two-thirds mark, raising about $25,000 – or about $8,000 more. Given the importance of the journalism that we produce, that…
