Robert Parry broke many of the Iran-Contra stories in the 1980s for the Associated Press and Newsweek. He founded Consortiumnews.com in 1995 as the Internet’s first investigative magazine. He saw it as a way to combine modern technology and old-fashioned journalism to counter the increasing triviality of the mainstream U.S. news media.




Get a Second Book for a Nickel!

From Journalist Robert Parry: You can get one of my earlier books, either Secrecy & Privilege or Neck Deep, for only a nickel when you buy my new book, America’s Stolen Narrative, through the Consortiumnews.com Web site. And shipping is free.

America’s Stolen Narrative is subtitled “From Washington and Madison to Nixon, Reagan and the Bushes to Obama.” The book’s opening chapter challenges the Tea Party’s misinformation about what the Framers were doing when they scrapped the states’-rights-oriented Articles of Confederation in favor of the Constitution.

The book also reveals new historical evidence showing how Richard Nixon’s “win-at-all-cost” political tactics became the playbook for the modern Republican Party and why Democrats have shied away from the hard work of accountability when faced with GOP crimes.

The two companion books, Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep, track the rise of the Bush family dynasty from the emergence of George H.W. Bush as a shrewd political operative to the disastrous presidency of his son, George W. Bush.

To get America’s Stolen Narrative and one of the companion books for a nickel, all you have to do is click here to buy with a Visa, Mastercard or Discover card, or you can mail a check for $25 to The Media Consortium; 2200 Wilson Blvd., Suite 102-231; Arlington VA 22201. (Please specify which companion book you want.) Or, can also use PayPal. Our account is the same as our e-mail address: “consortnew @ aol.com.”

You also can buy America’s Stolen Narrative as an e-book from Amazon.com or barnesandnoble.com. Amazon also carries it as a regular book.

If you buy the book through the Consortiumnews.com Web site, a portion of each sale will go to support our investigative journalism.

As always, thanks for your support.

Emptying the Book Warehouse

From Robert Parry: Some readers have urged me to write a new book, expanding on our investigative journalism over the past five years. But before I can start, I need to reduce the stockpile of my last two books Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep. So we are offering them at the lowest price yet.

You can help us by ordering the two-book set for only $16 or you can get an entire carton (28 books, either of one title or half-and-half of the two) for $56. And for U.S. orders I’ll pay for the postage. We’ll also count whatever we raise toward our spring fundraising goal.

The two books contain important recent history, facts that every American should know especially as we head toward an important election.

Secrecy & Privilege explains how George H.W. Bush rose to the White House, starting with his service to Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal; describes Bush’s bloody year as chief of the CIA; and exposes his secret effort to undermine President Jimmy Carter’s Iran-hostage talks in 1980.

Neck Deep, which I co-wrote with two of my sons, Sam and Nat, takes this remarkable story of the Bush Dynasty forward into the presidency of George W. Bush. The book also reveals the operations of the Right’s powerful propaganda machinery and the partisanship of today’s Republican-controlled U.S. Supreme Court.

These solidly reported histories should be part of every library. And you can help by getting a set for yourself, a friend or a public or school library.

You can take advantage of this special offer by following one of these steps:

–You can pay by credit card (Mastercard/Visa) simply by going to Consortiumnews.com’s donation site and putting in a one-time “donation” of $16 or $56. (You should then follow up with an e-mail to consortnew@aol.com to tell us your selection and give us your mailing address.)

–Or you can send a check for $16 or $56 to The Media Consortium; Suite 102-231; 2200 Wilson Blvd.; Arlington, VA 22201.

–Or you can use PayPal by making a payment to our account which is named after our e-mail address: “consortnew@aol.com” (Please include your mailing address in the PayPal message.)

Regarding the full-carton offer, you can get either a full box of Secrecy & Privilege or Neck Deep (28 copies in paperback) or you can ask for a half-and-half split (14 of each). Or you can get a full carton of Neck Deep in hard cover (24 per box).

(For non-U.S. orders for the two-book set, please add $10 for the additional postage. Regrettably, the cost of mailing a full carton outside the United States is prohibitive.)

Thanks for your support.

Help in Our Book Spring Cleaning

From Editor Robert Parry: We’re trying to reduce our stockpiles of books and reach our goal for the spring fundraiser. You can help in both while also getting important facts out to a broader public.

For the remainder of our spring fundraiser, you can get full cartons of Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep 28 books to a carton for only $59, and I’ll pay for the postage to U.S. mailing addresses.

Secrecy & Privilege by Robert Parry explains how George H.W. Bush rose to power through his service to Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal; describes Bush’s bloody year as chief of the CIA; exposes his secret effort to undermine President Jimmy Carter’s Iran-hostage talks in 1980; and tracks Bush’s role in other national security scandals, such as Iran-Contra and Iraqgate.

Neck Deep by Robert, Sam and Nat Parry takes this remarkable story of the Bush Family’s rise forward to George W. Bush seizing the highest office in land with the help of the Right’s powerful propaganda machinery, the systemic failure of the mainstream U.S. news media, and the coup d’etat by Republican political cronies on the U.S. Supreme Court handing Bush the White House.

To get the books at only about $2 a book, simply go to the Consortiumnews.com’s donation site and put in a $59 “donation” on your Visa or Mastercard. Follow up with an e-mail to consortnew@aol.com to give us your mailing address and your book selection.

We also will have to charge more for full cartons of Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep 28 books to a carton for only $59, also with free postage.

These current discounts will end by the start of March. So place your orders today:

The three books include some of most important work we have done at Consortiumnews.com over the past 16 years.

Lost History by Robert Parry recounts how the U.S. political process was led astray, in part, by the failure to face up to the darker chapters of America’s recent history. Even well-documented parts of that history, such as evidence of Nicaraguan Contra drug trafficking, were marginalized during Ronald Reagan’s feel-good presidency.

Secrecy & Privilege by Robert Parry explains how George H.W. Bush rose to power through his service to Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal; describes Bush’s bloody year as chief of the CIA; exposes his secret effort to undermine President Jimmy Carter’s Iran-hostage talks in 1980; and tracks Bush’s role in other national security scandals, such as Iran-Contra and Iraqgate.

Split Cartons Great for Book Clubs

Some readers have told us that our 50/50 split cartons of Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep are great for book clubs, with 14 copies of each book costing only $59 for the entire box (postage included for U.S. orders), or just over $2 per book. At that discount price, the full boxes of books (28 paperbacks in all) make sense, too, for re-sale, for your own fundraiser or as gifts.

And by ordering a box, you can help us whittle down our stockpile of books so we can close out our warehouse space and save nearly $200 each month.

If a full box doesn’t make sense for you, we also are continuing our special offer of the two-book set Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep both for only $19, again with postage included for U.S. orders. (Add $10 for non-U.S. orders for the two books.)

You can place your order:

–By credit card (Mastercard/Visa) by going to the Consortiumnews.com’s donation site and putting in a $59 charge (for the full box) or $19 (for the two-book order).

Please follow up with an e-mail to consortnew@aol.com to give us your mailing address. Otherwise, we’ll assume your billing and mailing address are the same.

Also, if you don’t want the 50/50 split on the full carton of books, you can ask us to substitute either a full box of 28 copies of either Secrecy & Privilege or Neck Deep in paperback, or a box of 24 hard-cover copies of Neck Deep.

–By check made out to The Media Consortium; Suite 102-231; 2200 Wilson Blvd.; Arlington, VA 22201.

–By PayPal, make a payment to our account, which is named after our e-mail address: “consortnew@aol.com” (Please include your mailing address in the PayPal message.)

The two books — Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep — contain important history about the recent era. For instance,

Secrecy & Privilege by Robert Parry explains how George H.W. Bush rose to power through his service to Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal; describes Bush’s bloody year as chief of the CIA; and exposes his secret effort to undermine President Jimmy Carter’s Iran-hostage talks in 1980.

Neck Deep by Robert, Sam and Nat Parry takes this remarkable story of the Bush Family’s rise forward to George W. Bush seizing the highest office in land with the help of the Right’s powerful propaganda machinery and Republican political cronies on the U.S. Supreme Court.

These solidly reported histories should be part of every library. You can help by getting a set for yourself, a friend or a public or school library or your book club.
