Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Chesapeake Totem

In the excellent Frontline documentary from last Tuesday night, Hedrick Smith sketched out the rapid rate at which we are killing our waterways. I got the idea for a totem pole showing the parts of at least one aspect of this problem. You can sign a petition by CLICKING HERE. And see a film clip below.


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.
