Consortium News - ahead of it's time and still the best in the business

This post first appeared on Russia Insider

Robert Parry is a longtime investigative reporter who broke many of the Iran-Contra stories for the Associated Press and Newsweek in the 1980s.

He founded Consortiumnews.com in 1995 to create an outlet for well-reported journalism that was being squeezed out of an increasingly trivialized U.S. news media.


One of the few sites which truly is essential reading.

 We’re wrapping up our Spring Fund Drive this week, but we’re still more than $10,000 short of our $25,000 goal. So, if you can, please help us close that gap. Contributions of all sizes are welcomed and appreciated.

You can make a tax-deductible donation by using a credit card online (we accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover) or you can mail a check to Consortium for Independent Journalism (CIJ); 2200 Wilson Blvd., Suite 102-231; Arlington VA 22201.

For readers wanting to use PayPal, you can address contributions to our account, which is named after our e-mail address: “consortnew @ aol.com”. We are also registered with PayPal’s Giving Fund under the name Consortium for Independent Journalism. (Since we are a 501-c-3 non-profit, donations by American taxpayers may be tax-deductible.)

We also are offering as a thank-you gift for donations of $125 or more a book and a DVD on how two pivotal presidential elections – 1968 and 1980 – were distorted by what look to be near-treasonous schemes to undermine U.S. negotiations with foreign governments. (Neither of these well-documented cases was touched by CNN in its series of electoral dirty-dealing.)

But you can review the evidence yourself by getting a signed copy of my latest book, America’s Stolen Narrative, and a DVD of a PBS documentary that I co-wrote entitled “The Election Held Hostage.” (If you want the gift set, please follow up your donation with an e-mail to us at[email protected] with instructions on where to mail it. We’ll pay the shipping charges.)

Another way to help is to buy one of my books – Fooling America, Lost History, Secrecy & Privilege or America’s Stolen Narrative – through the Web site and we’ll also send you a copy ofNeck Deep: The Disastrous Presidency of George W. Bush for free.

So you can get two books for the price of one and a portion of each sale will go toward the fund drive.

Again, thanks for your support and for making our two decades of honest journalism possible.
