A Man, A Plan: A Congressman’s plan to save money through Medicare is just talk for now.

Fate of Fuel: Ethanol’s production speed makes it the only biofuel sensitive to oil prices.

Forecast: Cloudy: Even Kevin Drum isn’t sure when/if they’ll ‘pass the damn bill’.

Simply Put: A solution to healthcare can sound simple, but the reality is complex.

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.
