Almost to End-of-Year Goal

From Editor Robert Parry: Thanks to the generosity of our readers we have almost reached our end-of-year fundraising goal. We’re less than $4,000 short of the $50,000 target. If you want to help us fill this budget hole…

A Special Look-back at 2014

A New Year's scene over Sydney, Australia

At Consortiumnews, we combine reporting on current events with the historical context that gives those events meaning, a context that is often lacking in the mainstream media. So a selection of our stories from 2014 offers an intriguing way to look back – and to understand – the pivotal events of the year just ended.

A $1,000 Challenge Grant

From Editor Robert Parry: A longtime donor has offered a $1,000 matching grant, meaning that your donations up to that amount will be doubled through the end of the year (with extra time for checks via snail mail). So, if you haven’t yet donated to our year-end fund drive, now would be a great time…

If You Want to Donate by Check…

Editor Robert Parry: We lost our old “donate by check” form during our recent security upgrades, so we are replacing it with a new form for those who prefer to donate by check or who wish to use a credit card but not on the Internet. Just print out the form. Or mail a check without a…

What Consortiumnews Tries to Do

From Editor Robert Parry: Since we started nearly two decades ago, the goal of Consortiumnews has been to give the people as unvarnished an account of important events as possible – because we feel that honest journalism is essential to democracy, presenting you the facts so you have the power to make informed judgments.

An Easier Way to Donate

From Editor Robert Parry: Over the past week, we have been adding new security features to our Web site so we can offer readers a safe way to contribute with a single-click, rather than having to input their credit card data each time. If this option appeals to you …

‘As Truthful an Account as Possible’

Journalist Robert Parry.

From Editor Robert Parry: As you might suspect, we sometimes receive negative comments from people who don’t like our journalism, but more often we find that readers appreciate what we have tried to do over the past 19 years – provide an honest accounting of what the U.S. government and other official bodies have been…

Consortiumnews Sets End-of-Year Goal

From Editor Robert Parry: We are setting the goal for our end-of-year fund drive at $50,000, not a huge sum but enough so we can put Consortiumnews on a firmer financial footing. That means we will need help from small, medium and large donors.

If You Were Dropped from Email List…

From Editor Robert Parry: I want to apologize to any readers who were inadvertently dropped from our email list for story notifications. Because the vendor handling that email service was raising rates based on size of email lists, we tried to purge “dead emails” but may have got some live ones, too. So…

Consider Consortiumnews on ‘Giving Tuesday’

Journalist Robert Parry.

From Editor Robert Parry: Dec. 2 is “Giving Tuesday” when people take a break from shopping and donate to charities – and while Consortiumnews might not jump to mind, it is crucial that our non-profit journalism keeps shedding light into the dark corners of global affairs because facts are the first line of defense against war and other horrors.
