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.
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…
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.
From Editor Robert Parry: “Black Friday” – the day after Thanksgiving – is the traditional start of the Christmas buying season with billions of dollars spent on merchandise. We would modestly encourage readers of Consortiumnews to consider purchases of our books as well.
From Editor Robert Parry: If Web sites could vote, Consortiumnews.com, which is turning 18 years old, would now be eligible. It was launched in mid-November 1995 as the first investigative news Web site on the Internet. You can help it continue.
