Person of the Day: Karl Rove

KARL ROVE, previously untouchable Bush mastermind, now finally fingered by the consequences of his own “genius.” Emails now reveal the connection between the firing of Federal Prosecutor Bud Cummins in favor of the placement of Rove’s favored hatchet man, Timothy Griffin (famous for “helping” vote counts along, especially in minority districts in Arkansas). Better late than never.


We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.

So we're hoping to raise $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall. Read our argument for journalism that is fair and accurate and stands for something—and join us with a tax-deductible monthly donation (or make a one-time gift) if you agree.
