“YOU’RE A TERRIFIC HOLOGRAM”….Wolf Blitzer is now talking to a holographic Jessica Yellen. “We’ve beamed you in,” says Blitzer. “It’s like I followed in the tradition of Princess Leia,” replies Yellin, in an old school reference to R2D2’s projection of Leia in the first Star Wars movie. And sure enough, the shimmering aura around Yellin really does look like that.

“You’re a terrific hologram,” says Blitzer when the segment ends. And with that she fades out.

Sheesh.

LESS DREADING, MORE DOING

This is the rubber-meets-road moment: the early days in our first fundraising drive since we took a big swing and merged with CIR to bring fearless investigative reporting to the internet, radio, video, and everywhere else that people need an antidote to lies and propaganda.

Donations have started slow, and we hope that explaining, level-headedly, why your support really is everything for our reporting will make a difference. Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” or in this 2:28 video about our merger (that literally just won an award), and please pitch in if you can right now.
