Jeez, can’t believe it’s the middle of June already. Yikes. Well, here’s the list of stories from yesterday’s Riff, Kevin Drum, and MoJo blogs that touch on Blue Marble subjects: 

Honesty FAIL: Healthcare CEOs tell the House just what slimy stuff they’re made of.

Ovation deflation: Obama gets booed by doctors.

What Not to Bear: Some say the gay pride flag needs a makeover. Calling Stacy and Clinton…

Protest bonus round: A few sad people still offended by Letterman’s joke, reject nth apology.

Palin’s instincts: Kevin Drum admires Palin’s political opportunism.

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.
